Children in Need | DIY SOS: The Big Build

The question on everyones lips in the office this morning is “Did you see it?” The answer is always “Yes! Wasn’t great?” This now familiar conversation has echoed round the warehouse, production floor and office and there is a real buzz at Rompa’s involvement in such a worthy cause. The worthy cause in question was a project to renovate The Yard in Edinburgh, a play centre for Children with special needs, that saw 300 trades and suppliers descend to completely overhaul the dilapidated centre in just 9 days.


Rompa’s part in this project was to donate a state of the art sensory room that children will use to stimulate or relax their state as required. Among the many items in the BBC sensory room where Rompa’s Talking Cube controller, Colour Match Panel, Bubble Tube and one of our latest innovations the Rompa Bubble Wall!

The open mouth reactions to the room by the DIY SOS team when they played with the Talking Cube and saw the colour of all the components in room change in unison was priceless. There were tears of joy on reveal day and more astoundment from The Yard’s staff when they saw the room. We’re all very proud of Rompa’s involvment in Children in Need and special thanks go to James C and Mark J for delivering such a successful sensory room.
