RGB Building Supplies is asking customers to donate gifts, no matter how big or small, to its Christmas Present Appeal in aid of Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

Between Monday 14 November and Monday 12 December, a gift suitable for a child of any age or their parents can be placed under the Christmas tree in any RGB branch. At the end of the appeal, CHSW will distribute the presents to the children and families they support, in time to be enjoyed over the festive period.

The hospice provides care for children with life-limiting conditions and their families across the South West. The care offered ranges from respite and short breaks, to emergency and end of life care.

Naomi Dymond, corporate partnerships fundraiser at CHSW, said: “We cannot thank RGB Building Supplies enough for choosing to support CHSW in such a wonderful way this Christmas. The donations received from customers and staff will help to make this special time as memorable as possible.

“During the year, our children and families need very special care and Christmas is one such occasion. Many parents feel overwhelmed by the competing demands they are juggling at this time – the round the clock needs of their child, the anticipation of brothers and sisters and the challenge of preparing all the festive fare. This is why our hospices remain open throughout the year – so we can be there for families, whenever they need us, to provide much needed support.”
