Chandlers at 'cutting' edge of charity fundraising
We are giving customers the chance to purchase special items in aid of our appeal to raise £50,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
£1 from the sale of special Chandlers £50k Challenge saws and tapes measures, and 50p from the sale of the appeal's builders' pencils will go towards the charity campaign.
The appeal is in honour of employee Rob Sadler, a Cystic Fibrosis sufferer himself. Rob not only marked 30 years of Chandlers employment last year, but more significantly turned 50 in December; those with Cystic Fibrosis are not expected to live beyond their 30s.
Richard Skinner, Commercial Director at Chandlers Building Supplies, commented, "So far a fantastic £28,000 has been raised for the Chandlers £50k Challenge, which we are all thrilled about. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is a fantastic charity that has really helped our colleague Rob. £1,300 of that total has been raised from people purchasing the charity items and we would like to thank everyone who bought a saw, tape measure or pencil."
The Chandlers £50k Challenge saws retail at just £1.66 + VAT and are available from all branches. The tape measures are £6.77 + VAT and are available from our Chertsey branch and the builders' pencils are £1.01 + VAT each and can be bought from our Thanet and Petworth branches.
