You may remember when Hugh Fearnley-Whittngstall took on the
task of campaigning for more sustainable seafood and Channel 4 got
right behind him, documenting his journey in the popular programme,
'The Big Fish Fight'. Well, now they're at it again but this time
they're tackling the issue of wasted empty homes in Britain.
The campaign looks to change the state of play with the current
housing crisis and has
attracted support from high profile celebrities such as John
Snow, Will Young, Kevin McCloud and Phil Spencer.
The figures really are quite shocking - did you know there are
over 1 million empty homes just sitting there going to waste with
over 2 million families without a decent or stable home. And this
is exactly the problem that '
The Great British Property Scandal' is looking to highlight and
But where do we come into all of this? Well, as part of the
campaign Channel 4 are going to take two such empty houses and turn
them into a dream home for two lucky families. So we decided to
support the campaign by donating one of our own Lanhydrock
loose cover chairs, to help wonderfully talented interior
Brewer turn these forgotten houses into cosy family homes.
So, if you fancy seeing if you can spot our chair on the show
(we won't completely spoil the game by telling you what colour it
is), then make sure you tune in to Channel 4 on Monday and Tuesday
You can also support "The Great British Property Scandal" by
reporting an empty home, following them on Twitter or catching
