Recticel Insulation has teamed-up with Jewson to deliver building projects that are in need of a helping hand. It’s part of the Building Better Communities competition that is open to applications from improvement projects across England, Scotland and Wales.
Groups can apply for a share of this year’s regional prize fund which has doubled to £200,000. Anything from £500 to £10,000 is available to spend on building materials for individual projects, or community organisations can put their project forward for the top prize of £50,000 for building materials and labour.
Recticel has been supplying its range of top-quality PIR products to Jewson outlets nationwide since 2009. Kevin Bohea, Recticel Commercial Director, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Jewson’s wonderfully worthwhile project, supplying the materials to help construct buildings that will make a positive difference to communities across the UK.”
In a new addition to the 2017 competition, communities can also nominate a ‘Trade Hero’ – a tradesperson who plays a big role in their area, whether it’s a roofer who has fixed a leak in the village hall or a builder who has supported a local children’s charity. The winner of the Trade Hero category will receive £50,000 worth of building materials to enable them to complete a worthy community project.
Community groups and tradespeople nominations closed on May 5th. For information on successful applications, visit: www.buildingbettercommunities.co.uk
