Devon builders merchants supports national campaign to help Ukrainian citizens

RGB Building Supplies is supporting the Builders Merchants Federation’s (BMF) national appeal to help the people of Ukraine by collecting essential items.

RGB’s branches have created donation areas where its staff, customers and those in the local area can drop-off items such as thermal clothing, bedding, sleeping bags, torches, first aid kits, toiletries, baby items, household cleaning items and non-perishable food.

All the donated items will be passed to the charity Feed the Hungry who will distribute them to those in need.

The donation points will be in RGB’s branches between Monday 4th April and Saturday 30th April.

Paul West, Branch Manager at RGB Exeter, commented:

“The brutal war has caused so many people to flee their homes leaving them with nothing, so builders merchants from across the country have joined together to support the BMF’s appeal and help Ukrainian citizens during this humanitarian crisis. At the outset we want to thank the kind-hearted people in our community for their donations.”

A full list of the items that can be donated is available as part of the appeal can be found on RGB Building Supplies’ website – https://www.rgbltd.co.uk/ – or in the branches.
