Together to sponsor second series of The Great House Giveaway

Together has agreed a sponsorship deal for a second series of national property renovation TV show, The Great House Giveaway.

Following the lender’s support for the first series, it has agreed a £4.5m commercial facility for the producers, Welsh indie Chwarel, allowing contestants featuring in the new series to buy and renovate run-down houses across the UK.

Each episode of the show sees teams of two who have never met or owned their own homes before.

They are given a set budget and six months to refurbish a property before selling it.

If they don’t sell, the house goes back to auction.

“We’re incredibly proud to be sponsoring The Great House Giveaway for a second series,” said Chris Baguley, commercial managing director at Together.

“We’re delighted to once again be supporting this ground-breaking format and can’t wait to see how the contestants fare with their televised refurbishment projects.”

Sioned Wyn, executive producer at Chwarel, added: “The Great House Giveaway has been a rollercoaster of a project to work on in what has been extraordinary circumstances, both in the final post-production for the series and launching a new format in the middle of the year that we've all experienced.

“However, we’ve really enjoyed working with all the contestants, Channel 4, and our sponsor Together, to create this kind of aspirational, award-winning television.”
