National Trade Appreciation Day - Irwin Tools

IRWIN Tools is celebrating the UK and Ireland’s trade professionals with the return of its National Trade Appreciation Day. For the seventh year, IRWIN is bringing back its National Trade Appreciation Day to salute the country’s real working hands, and inspire the nation to show more gratitude for our skilled workers.

On Friday 15 September, the company will encourage people all across the UK to join in and celebrate the trade, even if it’s just with a simple ‘thanks’ to a trade professional.

Darren Barber, Marketing Director UK and ROI at Stanley Black & Decker, said: “Trade professionals are the backbone of our nation; they don’t just put a roof over our heads, they build this country and keep it running strong. To all these men and women who work tirelessly throughout the year, this day is our chance to give thanks and recognise them for their efforts. We want everyone to embrace National Trade Appreciation Day so that we can raise the profile of our hardworking tradespeople, the work they do, and more importantly, give them the recognition that they deserve.”

Since IRWIN first set out to champion the vital role of tradespeople, its employees and retail partners have personally thanked thousands of tradespeople and celebrated their contributions across the country, and to further celebrate the nation’s tradespeople, IRWIN will be hitting the road from September to November, hosting events at over 60 selected retail locations across the UK.

‘Rewards for Real Working Hands’

Plus, from 1 September to 30 November 2017, they will also be giving away thousands of gifts including tools and branded apparel to every tradesperson up and down the country through its ‘Rewards for Real Working Hands’ consumer promotion. One lucky and deserving tradesperson will also win a Mercedes-Benz Van.
