Summer projects needed for builders merchant’s Community Fund
Due to the overwhelming success of RGB Building Supplies’ Well Built Community Fund, the builders merchant will once again be giving away £1,000 worth of materials every other month until March 2018 – and now they’re calling out to the local community to get in contact and tell them who needs support.
Having previously given materials to a heritage project, community centre, amateur dramatic group, special needs school, scout group and a library, for this campaign RGB will be asking groups to nominate projects that fit in with the seasons.
For the first call out, RGB would like to hear from groups in the local area who need building materials to help with a summer project.
Perhaps a school needs materials to transform an outdoor area, a summer cycling club needs facilities to store equipment or a community group needs products to help build a stage for a summer festival, whatever the reason RGB would like to hear about it.
From all the nominations received three groups will be selected as finalists, then the local community will be asked to vote for who they would like to receive the building materials.
Adrian Borchardt, branch manager at RGB Crediton, said: “Our Community Fund continues to be extremely popular. Inviting groups to nominate projects that fit with specific seasons enables us to open up the fund to groups that perhaps haven’t fitted in to a previous category.
“This year we will also be doing two giveaways to individuals who need our support so will be asking the local community to nominate a friend or family member who deserves our help to complete a project in their own home.”
Groups can nominate their summer project by explaining how £1,000 worth of building materials could be of help. Nominations can be made by email to RGB@pmwcom.co.uk or by post to RGB Community Fund, c/o PMW Communications, PO Box 167, Bideford, Devon, EX39 9DU. The closing date for nominations is Sunday 7th May.
