Wienerberger donates bricks to the Guild of Bricklayers competitions

Published:  08 May, 2015

Wienerberger has announced its continued sponsorship of the Guild of Bricklayers competitions in 2015. Once again, the sponsorship will see the manufacturer donate bricks to a series of regional competitions and the national final.

Wienerberger has been the main sponsor of the Guild of Bricklayers competitions for many years, with this year seeing more than 60,000 bricks being donated for the competitions.

The Guild of Bricklayers is a national organisation, founded in 1932, with the aim of promoting and maintaining the highest standards of craftsmanship in brickwork. The regional competitions for brickwork apprentices are organised annually by Guild of Bricklayers Section Committees, with the final taking place on 17 June at Leeds College of Building.

James Howe, president of the Guild of Bricklayers, said: “Wienerberger is a long-time supporter of the Guild of Bricklayers competitions, having been the main sponsor for many years. Its donations enable us to keep these important competitions going and I would like to thank them once again for their continued generosity.”

Richard Brown, wall category marketing manager at Wienerberger, added: “Supporting the next generation of skilled tradespeople is a core principle for Wienerberger. The high standard of workmanship we see in these competitions from the students is very impressive and testament to the quality of tuition on offer from the colleges. I’d like to wish everyone taking part the very best of luck.”
