Torbay builders merchant calling out to charities


For its latest Surprise Supplies giveaway, RGB Building Supplies is inviting charities from across the area to get in touch and explain how a donation of £1,000 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 £1,000 to spend at their local RGB branch to help complete the project.

Mike Curtis, Branch Manager at RGB Torquay, commented: “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 worth 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 31st October.
Terms and conditions can be found on RGB’s website –
