Chandlers Builders Merchants is giving customers the chance to purchase special items in aid of its appeal to raise £50,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

£1 from the sale of special Chandlers £50k Challenge saws and tapes measures – and 50p from the sale of the appeal’s builders’ pencils – will go towards the charity campaign. The appeal is in honour of Chandlers’ employee Rob Sadler, who suffers from cystic fibrosis himself.

Richard Skinner, commercial director, said: “So far a fantastic £28,000 has been raised for the Chandlers £50k Challenge, which we are all thrilled about. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is a fantastic charity that has really helped our colleague Rob. £1,300 of that total has been raised from people purchasing the charity items and we would like to thank everyone who bought a saw, tape measure or pencil.”

The items are available to purchase from Chandlers branches.
