Screwfix Top Tradesperson champion, Toby Peacock, is preparing to see his name (and face) in lights in his hometown, Cambridge, after a 6x3m digital billboard has been unveiled outside Cambridge Football Club.
The award, which celebrates the very best of those working in the trades, saw the local electrician and owner of Down to Earth Electrical stand out among nine other tradespeople from across the UK and Ireland. Toby Peacock was announced as the Screwfix Top Tradesperson at the final, hosted by a panel of industry experts, held at Screwfix LIVE in Farnborough, on 23 September.
Toby wowed the judges with his professionalism and dedication to the trade, walking away with an ultimate trade bundle, consisting of £20,000 worth of tools, technology, and future training.
The unveiling of the digital billboard is a first for the retailer, and further cements its role in supporting tradespeople like Toby.
Toby comments, “The support Screwfix has already given me following my win has been incredible. As part of the competition, I received a prize bundle, but to see my face and business outside my home-town football club really has been the cherry on top for me. It will raise awareness of Down to Earth Electrical in my local area, helping me to attract new customers and grow my business further.”
Jack Wallace, Marketing Director at Screwfix adds, “Now in its 13th year, the Screwfix Top Tradesperson competition continues to go from strength to strength, shining a light on the very best of those working across the trades and the extra lengths it goes to support its customers, as well as its local communities. The billboard we’ve unveiled today not only celebrates Toby’s huge achievement in being recognised as Screwfix’s 2022 Top Tradesperson, but also the important role of tradespeople within our local communities, something we at Screwfix are incredibly passionate about championing.”
