Time to get your tools ready for the fourth annual Handyman Challenge to support the Campbell River Head Injury Support Society.

This fundraiser involves volunteer teams putting together a pre-sold shed with wood donated from Blacktail Sawmill.

There will also be construction of garden/storage sheds as well as other smaller items such as deck furniture, play houses or planters.

The building starts Saturday, June 4 and finishes up on June 5. Projects remain on public display at Robert Ostler Park for a week and will be sold by live auction – prices starting from $1,000 – on June 11 at 1 p.m.

Basic building materials are provided through donations and the builders are encouraged to add improvements such as windows to personalize and enhance the value of their shed.

Teams are also encouraged to obtain donations such as merchandise and gift certificates to add extra value to their shed package.

Independent judges will consider quality, value, and appearance before awarding the “Golden Hammer” to the best shed. Prize packages will be announced as soon as they are confirmed and will include great stuff for Gold, Silver, Bronze and Infamous “Rusty” Hammer winners.
