Helping charities build for the future


For its latest ‘Surprise Supplies’ giveaway, RGB Building Supplies is inviting charities from across Cornwall to get in touch and explain how a donation of £1k worth 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 would like to hear about it.

The builders merchant will choose a selection of finalists and ask the public to vote for two charities to each receive £1k to spend at their local RGB branch to help complete the project.

Richard Jayne, branch manager at RGB Penzance, said: “There are so many fantastic charities that do so much across the county – 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 £1k if voted as a Surprise Supplies winner.”

Nominations and applications can be made by emailing and explaining how the £1k worth of building materials will be used. The closing date is October 31.
