The opening was all about raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust and Sussex Air Ambulance.

The grand opening of Chandler's Roofing Supplies' newest flagship store in Guildford has been dedicated to raising money for two worthy charities.

The new 17,500 sq. ft. branch in Peasmarsh, is the largest of its kind in the region and follows a multi-million pound investment. It features a slick drive thru’ facility, a huge new warehouse and equally large yard which can stock in excess of 600 roofing products, making it one of the largest roofing merchant sites in the South East.

Jamie Costigan, Chandlers Roofing Supplies Branch Manager, said: “Our opening was all about raising money for two worthy charities; Teenage Cancer Trust and Sussex Air Ambulance. Our fundraising efforts will continue throughout October.”

Danny Spokes, Director of Chandlers Roofing Supplies, said: “The opening is great for the town and the many roofers in the area. There’s plenty on offer with special promotions and trade days running for the first few weeks as well as a number of fun initiatives to help raise funds for our selected charities. Last year we raised in excess of £150,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust, so are looking to beat, or at least match, that record this year.”

The latest branch joins the newly opened Leatherhead branch and a further new branch will open in Rye, East Sussex bringing the number of Chandlers Roofing Supplies branches to nine operating from the Midlands to the South East.
