Band of Builders Projects



Band of Builders aims to help members of the construction industry when times get tough, whether that’s through hands-on projects, advice and support, or just the sense of community that has grown through the simple act of wearing a BoB t-shirt or hoodie.

It’s a movement united by a desire to help one another and do someone else a good turn, whether they're a friend, colleague or someone on the other side of the country. It's an organisation whose motto is about actions, not just words.

Band of Builders

Band of Builders is the story of what happens when people unite to help others. It started with one man’s desire to help his friend in his hour of need and has grown into a global movement run by tradesmen, for tradesmen.

From the first project launched by founder Addam Smith to help his friend Keith Ellick after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Band of Builders has proved what can be achieved when people pull together. It’s a story that captures the hearts and minds of people across the UK and beyond and has helped the movement grow beyond anything anyone could have dreamed.

We intend to build on our projects to continue to help assist people in their hour of need and to help change lives for the better. Of course, it's not just the beneficiaries whose lives are changed by Band of Builders' projects; ask any one of the hundreds of tradespeople that have worked on projects. The camaraderie is intense, forming friendships that will last for life!
