Benchmarx Kitchen and Joinery, part of the Travis Perkins Group, is supplying Leicestershire children’s charity Wishes4Kids with a new kitchen completely free of charge.

Darren Porter, manager of Benchmarx Thurmaston, said: “I was trying to think of how we could help Wishes4Kids when I saw the kitchen was very old and suggested replacing it. We measured up, found a local fitter and now we’re just waiting to get started on the build. This is all part of our drive to build a relationship with the community we’re part of, while helping a cause we believe in.”

Two Benchmarx branches have opened recently in the Leicester area and have already got to work helping local charities.

On 6 March,the Ravensbridge branch opened its doors, closely followed by the Thurmaston branch on 20 March. Both branches have had a very strong first month and have been exceptionally well received by local tradespeople.
