Since we started Building Better Communities in 2015, we’ve helped over 40 projects, big and small, across the UK. During this time, we’ve been inspired by the tireless work of local tradespeople who have chipped in with these projects and thought it was time they got some recognition.
The results are in! We started our quest to find the cream of the UK’s young construction workers in January and were blown away by the quality of talent on show.

You might have noticed that at Jewson, we’re not afraid to don a pair of Lycra shorts and get on our bikes – particularly every year in September when Jewson colleagues cycle a relay marathon to raise money for charity in the Tour de Jewson.
So when Coventry-based veteran cyclist Mick Ives was looking for sponsors for his new charity adventure we jumped at the chance to support him.
Not every day do you get the chance to play with the pros, And it’s even better when you’re supporting a great cause which is why a charity match has been set up against United London FC. The world’s first managerless football team.
We’re pleased to announce the return of Building Better Communities. Our annual competition gives deserving causes and tradespeople that make a difference in their local area the chance to win a share of a £250,000 total prize fund.
