Tarka Valley Railway

Community Makeover Category

"As a charity that relies on donations and grants, we're thrilled to have been voted as the winners of the Well Built Community Fund. The tools we've purchased will not only assist the Petroc students in putting theory into practice, but also help our volunteers complete essential maintenance. Thank you to RGB Building Supplies for the donation, and to everyone who voted for us"

 


Transferable Skills Training

30th Well Built Community Fund - helping young people learn a trade

"The extended workshop will be fully accessible to cater for people of all abilities and needs, and will make such a difference to the training we're able to provide. We're a not for profit organisation, so rely on receiving grants and support to help young people gain new skills. Thank you to RGB for supporting TST, and to everyone who voted for us."

 


West Cornwall Women's Aid

Decorating Supplies Category

"It's vital the women and children we support are made to feel safe and valued, and arriving to a welcoming and aesthetically pleasing space really helps with this. We will be using the Community Fund donation to decorate bedrooms and communal areas, and we're extremely grateful to RGB; the money will make such a difference. A huge thank you to everyone who showed their support by voting for us."


Petroc Supported Learning

Kitchen & Bathroom Category

"Our kitchen areas are a vital part of the ongoing support our students receive. As well as prepping and cooking their food, they complete the washing-up and laundering of the items they use. What our students learn with us helps build confidence and enables them to continue to make healthy food choices and prepare their own meals at home."

"The current kitchens are over 10 years old, and we're looking forward to being able to update the areas, which our students will be fully involved with. Thank you to everyone who voted for us and to RGB for its donation."
