Communities benefit from Chandlers’ donations

Published:  12 December, 2014

Throughout 2014, Chandlers Building Supplies has supported the communities local to its branches by offering sponsorship and donating money or building materials totalling £9,000 to a wide range of projects, charities and groups.

As well as making monetary donations to charities that are supported by Chandlers staff and customers, the Sussex-based builders’ merchant has sponsored football, rugby and cricket teams and donated materials and products so that clubs were able to complete renovations.

Richard Skinner, commercial director at Chandlers, said: “Where we can help, we are fully committed to supporting groups, charities and projects, and see it as a key part of our community involvement. There are some fantastic groups in and around the areas local to our branches and, where it is practical for us to do so, we are always happy to offer some help.”

Chandlers Building Supplies will be continuing to support a wide range of groups throughout 2015 with its Chandlers in the Community campaign.
