The winner of the #ToolkitThursday selfie competition, Jack Bowers, has collected his prize – a MM2300A Multi-Meter worth £200.
Bowers, 22, collected his prize from the Blackpool branch of City Electrical Factors (CEF) last week, having visited the very same branch on Thursday 4 February 2016 – #ToolkitThursday – to collect his free Klein Toolkit worth more than £250. These kits are now being given to all JTL electrical apprentices, with Monument Tools continuing to provide kits for JTL’s plumbing apprentices.
On collection of his toolkit in February, Bowers and his fellow learners collecting kits were encouraged to take a ‘selfie’ with their new tools, with the one that received the most retweets and likes being the winner, and earning the individual the Multi-Meter.
Bowers, known on Twitter as Jack Sperrin, saw his photo pick up 37 retweets and 28 likes on Twitter.
#ToolkitThursday saw more than 1,000 apprentices pick up their kits from their local CEF branch on the day, with another 350 collecting their toolkits in the week or two following the big day. The event was the first major distribution of Klein toolkits to new apprentices in England and Wales, following the joint partnership between JTL, Klein Tools and Super Rod announced earlier in 2015.
