Christmas can be a stressful time of year for many families, and if money is tight, it can be even more difficult. That’s why MyBuilder is launching the 2017 Hero Project, where fantastic tradespeople can help lend a hand to those in need.

If you’re in need of a small job doing around the house but can’t afford it, you can enter it for the Hero Project. Across the country, generous tradespeople will be donating up to a day of their time to get the jobs done, while MyBuilder will pledge up to £100 worth of materials to each project.

We can’t undertake major works or serious renovations – but if you need your boiler serviced, or a leak repaired, and the budget just won’t stretch, then we may be able to help spread some Christmas cheer.

If you need a present that only a tradesperson can deliver, simply post your job on MyBuilder explaining what needs to be done along with your details and a photo of yourself. We hope to match as many heroes and homeowners as possible, so make sure you explain why you need it!
