Community Fund Winners 2016-17
Coldharbour Mill Museum
Heritage Project Category
"Due to the nature and age of the Mill it does need continuous maintenance, but as we are a not-for-profit museum, we rely solely on donations and grants. We're therefore extremely grateful to RGB Building Supplies for supporting us with the Community Fund. The repairs were completed by a team of our volunteers, headed up by John Chilcott, who all did a fantastic job."
Whole Again Communities
Community Centre/Village Hall Category
"We have recently taken over a very run down community space and have already made extensive repairs thanks to the help of local businesses, but there's still more we want to do. We will be aiming to use the £1,000 worth of materials to build a shed to house equipment we use during our workshops and events and also make further essential repairs. We'd like to say a huge thank you to RGB Building Supplies and everyone that voted for us."
Crediton Operatic & Dramatic Society
Amateur Dramatic Group Category
"On behalf of CODS, we were delighted to be shortlisted for the RGB community award. As a group, we then worked tirelessly to raise the profile of the award with our friends, family and local town, as well as our followers and asked for their support. We were stunned with the response we got and were over the moon to have been successful in our bid. Since the RGB branch opened in Crediton, we have always used them to buy our materials for all of our productions, and they have been very supportive and helpful over the years. Winning this grant will help us with our production, and we cannot thank RGB enough. "
Lampard Community School
Special Needs School Category
"We are so excited to have this money to spend. It will be wonderful to have an outside area that the children can use all year round. We will be sure to invite RGB back very soon to see the transformation."
1st Chulmleigh Scouts
Scouts or Guides Group Category
"We would like to say a big thank you to everyone that voted for us and to RGB Building Supplies for the donation. The activities we provide children and young adults in Chulmleigh and the surrounding areas ensure they grow up with a wide range of skills, a healthy respect for themselves and their community, and a sense of adventure. It's therefore really important we're able to protect our equipment, and we're thrilled we're now able to update our facilities."
Muddy Boots Pre-School
"I would like to say a huge thank you to all my family, friends and the RGB customers who voted for Muddy Boots to win the Well-Built Community Fund, I'm overwhelmed by the support, and also to RGB for the donation of materials."
