Builders merchant wants to hear about deserving local people
Ever since RGB Building Supplies launched its Well Built Community Fund in 2014 it’s been donating £1,000 of building materials to charities, schools, projects and community groups from across the region every other month.
But for its next giveaway, RGB is asking local communities to tell them about deserving people who need help to complete a project in their own home.
Perhaps a family has gone through a difficult time and their loved ones would like to spruce up their home, or someone needs help to transform a bathroom to make it accessible for their needs, or maybe new landscaping is needed so a garden is wheelchair friendly.
Whatever the reason, RGB would like to hear about it.
From all the nominations received, one individual or family will be chosen to receive £1,000 worth of much-needed building materials to help complete a project.
Paul West, branch manager at RGB Exeter, said: “We’re delighted that this year we’re also helping individuals as well as groups with our Community Fund.
“As we have kitchen and bathroom showrooms in some locations and our branches have a range of landscaping, plumbing and heating, decorating and general building products, we’re able to help with a wide array of projects and want to encourage the local community to let us know about family or friends who could do with our support.”
Nominations can be emailed to RGB@pmwcom.co.uk or posted to RGB Community Fund, c/o PMW Communications, PO Box 167, Bideford, Devon, EX39 9DU.
The nominations must include details about the person or family needing help and why, together with an idea of the materials that are required.
The closing date for nominations is Sunday 25th June.
