Chandlers Building Supplies helps homeless charity

A charity open day at the Brighton branch of independent builders merchant Chandlers Building Supplies raked in £500 for a local homeless charity, Off The Fence.


The event celebrated the newly extended branch and attracted the support of local councillor, Robert Nemeth, and neighbour Fat Boy Slim (Norman Cook). Big Brother 2016 winner Jason Burrill  sportingly played goalie for a ‘beat the goalie’ competition and a Simon Cowell look-a-like posed for selfies. All proceeds from the day will benefit Off The Fence.

Sue McKinney, marketing manager of Chandlers Building Supplies said: “We are delighted to support the great work of everyone at Off The Fence, a charity dedicated to helping local homeless people. Our thanks go to the generosity of all customers and neighbours who supported the event, to the fabulous Big Beach Café for providing a free breakfast to encourage donations and to Celeb FC for providing ‘Simon Cowell’ and Jason Burrill.”

Donna Williamson of Off The Fence said: “We are over the moon with the support of Chandlers Building Supplies and the local community. This amazing donation will make a big difference to the homeless community in Brighton.”

Chandlers Building Supplies newly extended premises employs 33 and now has a kitchen offering along side roofing supplies as well as the entire traditional builders merchants offering.

Celeb FC and the Celeb FC team (a rolling group of 30 celebs) play football matches and make appearances to raise monies for various causes all over the UK.
