Robert Price Builders’ Merchants Ltd have raised over £3500 to contribute to local initiatives, including foodbanks, children’s toy banks and facility collections this winter.
Robert Price have been working in collaboration with their supply chain, with a range of generous suppliers involved in donations for the Robert Price Christmas Community Initiative. The proceeds will be used to stock up food bank initiatives across South Wales.
Robert Price’s Public Sector and Housing Association clients have been invited to participate in the initiative, distributing their share of the community pot in a different ways. The Christmas Community Initiative food parcels, presents and donations will go out to families in Caerphilly, Torfaen, Blaenau Gwent, Glamorgan, Monmouthshire, Newport and Cardiff.
The initiative has been co-ordinated by the Robert Price Public Sector team and headed up by Dave Pattison. The collection is to be divided between the recipient association food bank causes, who typically rely on individual contributions and donations from other local families.
Dave Pattison of Robert Price said: “The number of families who rely on food bank donations has increased dramatically over recent years. As more and more of our partners’ clients and tenants require this voluntary service, we saw fit to help with the contributions where we could. Food banks are a relevant issue all year round, but helping families over the festive period is particularly heart-warming. Our donations included toys and presents too, that can make Christmas really special. I’d like to thank all our suppliers, who have wholeheartedly supported our initiative. It is such a wide reaching and deserved cause, we really appreciate the wider involvement in our appeal.”
Contributing suppliers include: Redring, Wavin, Nuaire, AKW, Worcester Bosch, LED Robus, Spirotech, Quinn, Carrara & Matta, Pegler, Seren, Marley, 3D Flooring, Nicobond, Adey, Crabtree, Rixonway, F&P Wholesale, Rangemaster and Siniat.
