A PORTHLEVEN tradesman has won £1,900 worth of tools in a national competition.

The competition was held in builders merchants up and down the country and any customer who bought Toolbank tools in the lead-up to Christmas was entered into a prize draw.

After making a purchase at RGB Building Supplies’ Porthleven branch, Doug Taylor’s name was picked out of the hat as the winner and he was presented with his prizes earlier this month by the store's branch manager Lee Atkinson and Mike Thomas from Toolbank.

Mr Atkinson said: "Congratulations to Doug. He’s one of our regular customers and we’re delighted he was chosen as the Toolbank competition winner.”
