RGB Building Supplies has exceeded a fundraising target it had pledged to achieve in a year for the Exeter Chiefs Foundation XV programme.
Thanks to customer donations from a company-wide breakfast morning, an auction for Exeter Chiefs match tickets and two members of staff completing a charity sky dive, the company has in fact raised £1,923.73, exceeding its target of £1,500.00.
The money will help the Exeter Chiefs Foundation continue to support a wide range of charities in the area. Since it was set up in 2011, it has raised over £1m and supported over 75 different organisations and charities.
Kevin Fenlon, CEO at RGB Building Supplies, explained: “The aims of the Exeter Chiefs Foundation fit with our commitment of supporting communities local to our branches, so we’re delighted to be members of the Foundation XV programme. We’d like to thank everyone who supported our breakfast morning, bid in the auction for match tickets, donated to our team members’ sky dives, and helped us to exceed our target.”
