We did it

To restore three derelict buildings on Sunderland's High Street. This will become the new home for PopRecs and their family of creatives.

I would like to support people who do not only ask for government support but start to realise projects on their own responsiblity. Good luck from the continent.

Hi Martin, I have been following your posts on twitter and admire the restoration aspect. I don’t know you but keep up the good work, a very worthy cause. Best of luck with the project. Regards, Dean from Gilesgate Bathroom Studio. (Ps Sunderland born and bred)
