Whether it’s a community project close to your heart or a deserving colleague who needs a helping hand, those in the building trade can put forward their good cause to win a share of £250,000 in building materials, with two top prizes of up to £50,000. After launching its Trade Hero category in 2017, Jewson is giving more to the trade this year with £100,000 of the total prize fund put aside to support those in the industry.

PAST winners

Builder and founder of the Band of Builders, Addam Smith, was named as the winner of the Trade Hero Award in 2017 and has since used the prize of £50,000 worth of building materials to transform the lives of two fellow tradesmen. Addam and the Band of Builders renovated the garden of Dan McIntosh, a carpenter and father of three who was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Most recently, the team spent eight days revamping the home of Carl Jenkins, a plasterer whose little girl was born with a range of complications.

Last year’s community project winner was Farms for City Children. The project won £50,000 thanks to local carpenter, Chris James, who secretly nominated the cause in Building Better Communities.
