Last chance to win £150k for
Southport community makeover
SOUTHPORT residents have until 29
April 2016 to put their community project forward for a top transformation from
builders' merchant, Jewson.
As part of its Building Better Communities campaign, Jewson is asking local
people in Southport to put forward community buildings that are in need of some
TLC. From a much needed coat of paint for a village hall, to a brand new home
for a local sports club, community spaces most in need could win a share of a
new, mammoth £250,000 prize pot.
This year, applicants can choose to put forward their project for either a top
£150,000 prize or a smaller share of a regional prize £100,000 fund where they
can ask for anything from £500 to £10,000 to spend on building materials.
Nominations can be made on there campaign's
website or on Jewson Facebook
A new addition for 2016 is the top £150,000 prize, which will see 1 project
receive a transformation using the Saint Gobain 'My Comfort' building
David Fenton, Marketing Director at Jewson, said:- "We want to make a
difference to the communities we work in and help transform projects that are
close to their hearts. That's why we've upped the prize fund to a quarter of a
million pounds this year, so that we can turn the buildings we love into warm,
inviting and efficient spaces for the whole community to enjoy. If you know of a
project which can help to make an impact where you live, get on Facebook and
spread the word!'
In 2015, Jewson received over 2,000 entries into the competition and as a
result, it helped to change the future of 14 community projects across Great
