Could this prize fund benefit your organisation? Time is running out, submit your nomination today! @WeAreBCR


At Jewson, we value the communities we are a part of, and as such, have devised a community initiative which we would like to make you aware of.

In 2016 we will be giving away a total of £250,000 to local community projects across the UK.

Building Better Communities

To try and make the biggest impact possible across the UK, we have developed Building Better Communities – a competition which gives local causes the chance to win free building materials for building projects.

This year, applicants can choose to nominate a project for either the main prize of a £150,000 ‘My Comfort’ building transformation, or a share of a £100,000 regional prize fund, where they can ask for anything from £500 to £10,000 to spend on building materials.

Nominations can be made via or the Jewson Facebook page at Nominations close on: 29th April 2016.

How the competition will work

Nominating projects (29/03/2016-29/04/2016)

It may be a new roof for a village hall, a clubhouse extension for your sports club, or the renovation of a long-forgotten community building.

Voting (16/05/2016-19/06/2016)

Once the nominations are in, a shortlist will be announced. If a project is lucky enough to make the list, the community need’s to get behind it and vote.

The winners (w/c 04/07/2016)

When the voting is closed, our panel will judge each entry and select the winners.

We want to hear from you! 


It’s really simple to enter the competition, simply submit 300 words and an image or two.
