Builders’ bums needed for charity


Tradespeople across Cornwall are being invited to nominate themselves and their bottoms for inclusion in RGB Building Supplies’ Builders Bums 2022 charity calendar, which will be sold in aid of Cornwall Mind.

RGB would like to include men and women in the trade from across the region who will be photographed doing their job, but showing a little bit of their derriere.

As a local charity affiliated with the national Mind association, Cornwall Mind provides advice, information and support. They create campaigns to improve support services, raise awareness, and promote the understanding of mental health in Cornwall. The charity also runs a number of support groups, recovery courses and one to one counselling sessions.

Kevin Fenlon, CEO of RGB, commented: “Our 2022 Builders Bum calendar will poke fun at a very unwarranted construction industry stereotype, while raising money for an extremely worthwhile charity. We have amazing tradespeople in our area, who we know will be happy to get involved and we look forward to hearing from them.”

Building companies or self-employed carpenters, plumbers, builders, roofers or painters and decorators who would like to be included in the calendar simply need to email by Saturday July 31. RGB will arrange for tasteful photos to be taken.

The builders bum calendar will go on sale mid-October with all proceeds being donated to RGB’s chosen charities – Cornwall Mind, Devon Mind and Mind in Somerset.
