We are super excited to announce that local builders’ merchant RGB Building Supplies has selected Cornwall Mind (alongside our colleagues at Devon Mind and Mind in Somerset) as its Charity of the Year for 2021—22!
RGB are one of the leading independent builders merchants in the South West operating out of 20 locations across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. Over the next 12 months, RGB will be organising various fundraising events to raise money for better mental health in Cornwall.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has had an extremely negative impact on the mental health of some of those in our region and, over the past 18 months, Cornwall Mind has seen the number of people using its services grow exponentially. We’re delighted to be supporting the charity by committing to raise money to help it supply life-saving services. We know it’s a cause that our customers will get fully behind and, at the outset, we want to thank everyone who helps us with our fundraising.”
Martin Ballantyne, Branch Manager at RGB Bodmin
“We are delighted that RGB has chosen to support Cornwall Mind. Their commitment over the next 12 months to raise funds, and just as importantly, raise awareness of mental health is inspirational and I know it will make a real difference to the people we support. The wellbeing groups, that this initiative will support, provide safe, supported spaces for people to connect, share and focus on recovery and staying well. Mental health affects us all in one way or another and I am always delighted when industries such as construction acknowledge this. Thank you so much!”
Paul Reeve, CEO, Cornwall Mind
