RGB Building Supplies’ has launched its Christmas appeal.

Between November 1 and December 1, the Wellington branch will be displaying a Christmas tree and is inviting people to place a gift under it.

The gifts will be given to Children’s Hospice South West.

Presents can be for a child of any age, or their parents.

The hospice will then distribute the gifts to families on Christmas day.

Naomi Dymond, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at Children’s Hospice South West, commented: “We received the most incredible number of gifts for our children and families following RGB’s Christmas appeal last year, and can’t thank the community enough for its generosity.  Christmas is such an important and poignant time for our families and this appeal is a great way to support our work and help us to continue to raise a smile. Thank you for your wonderful support!”

Paul Fleming, Branch Manager at RGB Wellington, said: “We were overwhelmed by the number of gifts donated to our 2016 appeal, so we’re delighted to bring it back this year; it’s clear that Children’s Hospice South West is a much-loved charity which the local community is keen to support.”
