Torbay builders merchant calling out to charities

Torbay Weekly

A Torbay builders merchant is inviting charities to get in touch and explain how a donation of £1,000 of building materials would be of benefit to them.

Whether a charity needs to complete some essential repairs, update an outdoor area, give their space a lick of paint, or create an accessible bathroom, RGB Building Supplies would like to hear about it.

For its latest Surprise Supplies giveaway, the builders merchant - which has branches in both Torquay and Paignton - will choose a selection of finalists and ask the public to vote for two charities to each receive £1,000 to spend at their local RGB branch to help complete the project.

Mike Curtis, manager at RGB Torquay, said: “There are so many fantastic charities that do so much in the local area – particularly over the last 18 months – and they deserve some extra support.

"We would like charities to come forward and tell us a bit about how they support their local community and how they would use the £1,000 if voted as a Surprise Supplies winner.”

Nominations and applications can be made by emailing and explaining how the £1,000 of building materials will be used.

Nominations can also be posted to RGB Community Fund, c/o PMW, PO Box 167, Bideford, Devon EX39 9DU. The closing date is Sunday, October 31.
