RGB Launceston raises money for charity during birthday celebrations

Published:  04 December, 2015

The Launceston branch of RGB Building Supplies celebrated 25 years of trading on 25 November by holding a charity breakfast morning.

Throughout the morning, RGB staff served breakfast to customers old and new who were given the chance to look around the refurbished kitchen and bathroom showroom. Visitors also helped to raise over £200 for RGB’s chosen charity, Prostate Cancer UK, by purchasing a raffle ticket to win an iPad Mini and various other prizes.

A number of suppliers, including Keylite, Spax, ICI, Grant and Estimators Online were also on-site demonstrating products.

Tony Jackman, branch manager at RGB Launceston, said: “Thank you to everyone who helped us to celebrate being part of the Launceston community for the past 25 years and raising important funds for Prostate Cancer UK. Here’s to the next 25!”
