Hand cleaner manufacturer Swarfega has launched a new competition to crown the UK's 'toughest trade'.

Across January and February, Swarfega will be challenging tradespeople to post a picture of them battling their toughest task on its Facebook or Twitter page with the hashtag #ToughestTrade, and a short reason why their trade should win 2019’s accolade.

At the end of February, Swarfega will judge each picture and choose the one showing the toughest task. The winner chosen will receive £200 Amazon vouchers and the trade that the winner represents will be crowned Swarfega’s new 'toughest trade' for 2019. 

The 2018 title went to Russell Ennis, representing plasterers with his mammoth task of plastering a huge vaulted ceiling.
