Chandlers reaches £28k charity appeal mark
Published: 18 February, 2014
Chandlers Building Supplies has thanked everyone that has helped them reach the £28,000 mark in its Chandlers £50k Challenge charity appeal.
The Chandlers £50k Challenge launched in 2013 and aims to raise £50,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust in honour of employee Rob Sadler. Chandlers staff, customers and communities local to their branches have all supported the campaign and have taken part in many fundraising events, from sponsored runs, football matches and charity golf days to barn dances, silent auctions and cricket matches.
Mr Sadler said: “The support has been fantastic and we are delighted to have reached £28,000. However, it is not too late to get involved. So if a company, school or college would like to put on their own fundraising event for the appeal, or they are able to donate a prize to a silent auction, we would love to hear from them.”
Richard Skinner, commercial director at Chandlers, added: “A big thank you to everyone who has made a contribution to any of the fundraising activities that have taken place so far. Although we are focusing on raising money with our colleague Rob in mind, cystic fibrosis is a condition that affects the lives of families across the country, so any money raised goes to a great cause.”
