Jewson Building Better Communities competition returns for 2017

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.

New for 2017 is the Trade Hero category; which seeks to celebrate construction workers who carry out the behind the scenes tasks in their community that often go unnoticed. Whether you’re 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 hear from you. The winner will be rewarded with £50,000 worth of building materials, to enable them to complete a worthy community project.

In addition to the £50,000 trade hero prize fund, we’ve also doubled this year’s regional prize fund to £200,000. This is open to applications from improvement projects across England, Scotland and Wales. Community groups can all apply for help with renovations large or small, with the most deserving project receiving a top prize of £50,000 for materials and labour.

The deadline for entries is 5th May 2017. See more information about the competition and submit nominations here: www.buildingbettercommunities.co.uk
