Heroic Tradesmen are giving up their time this Christmas to help families in need

Hero project

Builders, plumbers and electricians and more from across the country are taking part in the MyBuilder 2017 Hero Project, giving up a day of their time to carry out work for homeowners who would normally be unable to get essential work done.

MyBuilder.com, the leading online marketplace for homeowners to find quality tradesmen, has launched its annual Hero Project, challenging generous tradespeople to give up a day of their time to undertake jobs for people in need. Tradespeople from all over the UK are already answering the call, taking on jobs without pay in order to help people out this Christmas.

If you or someone you know has not been able to afford a small, but essential job around the house, the MyBuilder Hero Project might be able to help.

To take part, homeowners-in-need can simply post a Hero Project job on the website, explaining what the job is and why they need it done. MyBuilder will then attempt to match them with tradespeople who will volunteer up to a day of their time, as well as compensating every tradesperson who takes part up to £100 for material costs.

Jobs that have already been posted on the site include fitting an extractor fan for a homeless shelter, and painting an autistic child’s bedroom their favourite colour.

Commenting on the Hero Project, MyBuilder founder and CEO Ryan Notz said:

“We know how much the amazing tradespeople that use MyBuilder love their communities, and we knew they’d jump at the chance to give something back this Christmas. When we’ve run the Hero Project in the past, we were overwhelmed with the response we got, and we expect this year to be bigger than ever. I’m sure we can help people and families in need across the country at a time when they need it most.
