Swarfega has announced the return of its Toughest Trade competition, where it will once again be searching for the UK’s toughest trade.
After a hard-fought battle, farmer Victoria Haney scooped the title of Toughest Tradesperson 2020, winning a £200 Amazon voucher. Her entry included a snapshot of images, from tending to the cows to early morning rises.
This was closely followed by a number of other gritty entries which came from the likes of mechanics and gravediggers.
After 2020 proved to be a tough year because of the Coronavirus pandemic, Swarfega will once again be on the hunt to find out if farmers can defend their title or if a competing trade will defeat them.
People working in the trades take on some of the toughest tasks around, as shown at the start of 2020 with the emergence of COVID-19. Mechanics have to deal with a multitude of tasks, drawing on mechanical and electrical skills alongside working with vehicles that have been everywhere but the wash bay. Mechanics were the crowning champions in 2019, so be sure to shout about the trade and send in a picture to Swarfega showing why being a mechanic is as tough as it gets.
Launching on Blue Monday, 18th January through to March, Swarfega will be challenging tradespeople to post a picture of them or a colleague battling their toughest task on the Swarfega Facebook or Twitter page, along with the hashtag #ToughestTrade and a short reason why their trade should win 2021’s accolade.
Throughout early 2021, using their Tough-O-Meter, Swarfega will judge each picture and choose the one showing the toughest task. The top four will be narrowed down and the winner will then be put to a social media vote. The crowning tradesperson will receive £200 in Amazon vouchers and the trade that the winner represents will be crowned Swarfega’s new Toughest Trade for 2021. The runners-up in places two – four will also receive a £50 Amazon voucher.
