BoB's Corporate Partnership with Jewson
Band of Builders and Jewson
BoB has an active community of nearly 50,000 tradespeople and supporters. In November 2022, it reached the milestone of delivering £1m worth of projects – based on the equivalent cost of labour and materials. The BBC One Show is set to cover a project this summer. The charity also organises the Big Brew, an annual event to raise awareness of the mental health crisis in the construction industry – where the suicide rate is estimated to be as high as two people every day – and has launched a mental health support service. BoB is only able to deliver projects and campaigns because of the supportive and symbiotic partnership it has forged with Jewson – which raises funds, is the largest host of annual Big Brew events and encourages staff to work on local BoB projects.
