TRADESMEN have teamed up to fit a free bathroom as a special gift.

Six lads from Widnes are inviting World readers to nominate someone they think deserves to win the prize.

Tiller Mike Blair came up with the idea and was overwhelmed when other skilled workmen offered to help him.

Dad-of-two Mike, aged 31, of Dykin Road,  who runs Supreme Tiling, said: “I wanted to do a makeover and was made up when these other lads asked if they could be part of it.

“We’re just lads from Widnes who want to give something back to our town as a little thank you.”

Mike, who is married to Emma, aged 24, and has a three-month-old baby Ollie, and five-year-old son, Ryan, said they are looking for someone who would really appreciate some help.

He said: “It might be someone who has hit a rough time and is struggling, or someone who is disabled and can’t get in the bath anymore and needs a wet room.

“We will strip the bathroom and replace everything.”

The prize includes labour and materials for a bathroom suite, re-wiring, re-plastering, plastic upvc ceiling, tiling and lighting.

The tradesmen include plumber Liam Smith from North West Gas, electrician Stu Gaffney from Red Lec, Dave Wheeler from Treadwell Carpets, and plasterers Gary Middlehurst and Gavin Conroy.

Nominations for The Community Giveway can be handed in at The Cancer Research UK charity shop, 69-71 Widnes Road WA8 6AZ before April 17.
