Builders' merchants adopt mental health charity for year

Torbay Weekly

RGB Building Supplies has selected mental health organisation Devon Mind as its chosen charity for the next 12 months.

The builders merchant will be organising various fundraising events to raise money for the charity.

Information from Mind indicates that one in four people will experience a mental health problem each year in England, and  one in six people report experiencing a common mental health problem, such as anxiety and depression, every week.

Mike Curtis, Branch Manager at RGB Torquay, said: "“The COVID-19 pandemic has had an extremely negative impact on the mental health of some of those in our region and, over the past 18 months, Devon Mind has seen the number of people using its services grow exponentially. We’re delighted to be supporting the charity."
