Challenge is on for tradespeople
To kick start the nation's football fever, Screwfix is providing tradespeople with the chance to participate in some football fun with its 'Back of the Van' 2016 football challenge. At selected Screwfix stores across the UK, tradespeople have the chance to be rewarded for their football skills whilst stocking up on trade essentials for work.
Plumbers, electricians, carpenters, builders and many more tradesmen and women are invited to their local stores to take part by competing head-to-head to see who can get the most footballs in to the back of a van in just 30 seconds.
Those who take up the challenge will be entered in to the 'Back of the Van' national prize-draw, sponsored by DeWalt, and be in with the chance to win the 'Ultimate Viewing Experience' prize worth £5,000, to make watching games truly memorable.
If that's not enough, those who join in the antics will not be walking away empty handed! Everyone who participates will receive a free gift from Screwfix and DeWalt, and the highest scoring contestant at each store will be awarded with a DeWalt combi drill.
"We know many of our trade customers have a love of the national game, so we wanted to offer a bit of fun during June, when they're popping by to stock up," explains John Mewett, marketing director at Screwfix.
"We look forward to seeing who has secret skills, but encourage anyone who wants to have a go to take on our challenge!"
For those who cannot make it to store there is a chance to take part and win online at facebook.com/Screwfix. The 'Back of the Van' scratch card game is available on Facebook.
Players simply need to match two symbols to win and claim the prize. Winners could be walking away with a trade essential - either a top of the range DeWalt Power Tool bundle worth £600, a DeWalt combi drill, 10% off at Screwfix or builders' gloves.
