Chandlers Building Supplies celebrated the completion of Chailey Heritage Foundation’s Patchwork Farm project by donating its final fundraising efforts to the Foundation. The money donated is part of the merchant’s ongoing support of Chailey Heritage Foundation.

The merchant both donated over £4,500 and provided product and equipment for the build for free or at cost price. Liz Beesley, who works at the Petworth branch of Chandlers Building Supplies, raised the lion’s share of the money. The outdoor learning project is for young people with complex physical disabilities and health needs.

Sue McKinney of Chandlers Building Supplies said: “We are a family-owned builders merchants and we genuinely care about our community. It is great to support such a marvelous charity that does amazing work with children from a vast catchment area. We are thrilled to see the tremendous end result that is Patchwork Farm.”

Jenny Hanraads of Chailey Heritage Foundations said: “Chandlers Building Supplies is a committed supporter of us and we are very grateful for all its efforts. Patchwork Farm has been a long-term vision and will make a huge difference to the children we support.”

The family-run builders merchants, that has 12 branches stretched across the South East and the Midlands, raised the money through an in-store competition and by donating product and equipment.
