Bradley Wood a Winner
The materials will be used to rejuvenate the service team building which following a leak, floors and hallways have been badly damaged and are now in need of repair. Gaz Pierce commented
'When our prize was announced, we were blown away. Having this value of materials available to us means that we can start work on fixing the building so young people can start to use it again. We intend to contact our local Jewson branch, where the team have supported us with applications, and get things moving quickly. We can’t thank Jewson enough for this!'
The competition was launched in March 2016, and saw more than 1,800 community projects nominated. With the help of employees and suppliers from across the UK, Jewson narrowed the number down to a shortlist of 59. The shortlist was then put to a public vote and, following further judging, Jewson announced the winner of the main prize and the final 27 regional winners, who will receive anything from £1,000 to £6,000 to spend on building materials.
