Since 2014, RGB Building Supplies has donated £23,000 worth of building materials to clubs, charities, schools and groups through its Well Built Community Fund and it’s delighted to announce the fund is returning for another 12-months.

For the next giveaway, RGB will be donating £1,000 worth of building materials to a group that’s taking part in a carnival or festival. So, whether materials are needed to help build a float, decorate a stall, or build a Carnival Queen’s throne, RGB would like to hear about it.

From all the nominations received, three will be chosen to go through to a vote where the public will be asked to decide who will receive the donation.

Paul West, Branch Manager at RGB Exeter, commented: “Our Well Built Community Fund allows us to give something back to the communities that have enabled us to successfully trade for over 165 years. It continues to show what amazing groups, charities and clubs there are in the area providing support for local people and we’re delighted to continue to donate materials every other month until March 2019.

“Carnivals and local festivals are great events for bringing the community together and we look forward to hearing how groups would use a donation of materials.”

To apply, groups simply need to contact RGB explaining how £1,000 worth of materials would be of benefit to them. Nominations can be made by email to RGB@pmwcom.co.uk or by post to RGB Community Fund, c/o PMW Communications, PO Box 167, Bideford, Devon, EX39 9DU.  The closing date for nominations is Sunday 6th May.

Further information about the different categories being support by the Community Fund can be found on RGB’s website, www.rgbltd.co.uk.
