2022 SGS Local Hero Awards Open For Entries

Nominate a tradesperson who has gone above and beyond to help, and they could win a prize worth £1,000.

In 2021, we launched our inaugural Local Hero Awards, with the view of celebrating tradespeople in your area who had gone above and beyond to help their community during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We were blown away by the stories of the builders, plumbers, electricians, joiners, gardeners, mechanics etc – who had done so much to help their local areas during this difficult time.

However, with so many stories of tradespeople going that extra mile for customers, we have opened the voting once again and have launched the Local Hero Awards 2022. We are inviting people across Britain to nominate tradespeople who have helped them in some way.

As a supplier of air compressors, gas struts, tool chests, power tools, garage equipment, garden tools and much more to the trade, we particularly wanted to celebrate and reward those working in our industry – builders, plumbers, electricians, joiners, gardeners, mechanics etc. – who have gone above and beyond to help those in need in the last 12 months. One national winner will be crowned, alongside up to five regional winners.

Prizes include:

  • Overall national winner: £1,000 cash prize
  • Regional winner (Scotland): £250 cash prize
  • Regional winner (Northern England): £250 cash prize
  • Regional winner (Midlands & Southern England): £250 cash prize
  • Regional winner (Wales): £250 cash prize
  • Regional winner (Northern Ireland): £250 cash prize

Nominating someone for a local hero award is free and easy to do via our entry form – please see below.

Those making a nomination should share information about the tradesperson who helped them (or a friend/family member), what that tradesperson did, and when they did it.

Entry closes at 11:59pm on Friday 15th April, so don’t delay!

Expert industry judges from SGS will be reviewing all entries and selecting the finalists.

A shortlist will be contacted and then revealed publicly on Tuesday 19th April

A poll will then be opened, enabling you to vote for an overall national winner and further five regional winners, which will be crowned on 2Thursday 28th April
