Jewson - helping build better communities

In 2016 we gave away £250,000 to buildings that really make a difference in your communities. But it's clear there are plenty more in need of our support, which is why we’re back for 2017 supporting projects up and down the country.

Prizes

Top Regional Prize

Top Regional

Prize of £50,000

This year we’re giving away a Top Prize of £50,000 split 50/50 between labour and building materials. Do you know a project which needs this support?

Trade Hero Prize

Trade Hero

Prize of £50,000

New for 2017 is the Trade Hero category, which seeks to celebrate construction workers who play a big role in their community. Whether it’s a roofer who has fixed a leak in the village hall or a builder who has supported a local children’s charity – we want to find these individuals. The Trade Hero will win £50,000 worth of building materials to enable them to complete a worthy community project. Are you a Trade Hero? Tell us what you would do with £50,000 worth of building materials for your community.

Regional Prize

Multiple prizes £500 to 10k

Could your local project use a share of our bigger prize fund? You can apply for building materials between £500 and £10,000 – just tell us your idea.
