Toolstation, Britain’s fastest growing suppliers of tools, accessories and building supplies, has launched a competition to locate the nation’s unsung heroes and give tradespeople back the ‘credit’ they deserve, both through recognition and up to £5,000 worth of prizes.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a tough year for many, but tradespeople have continued to provide essential services and keep us safe and comfortable at home. To celebrate the trades and to show recognition of their incredible support, Toolstation is encouraging customers to nominate either themselves or a tradesperson they know who has gone above and beyond, whether that is through helping the community or going the extra mile in their working lives.

The competition will run from Wednesday 31st March until the 29th April.
