Builders merchant launches campaign to support South West businesses

With the pandemic having had a detrimental effect on local businesses across the region, RGB Building Supplies’ latest ‘Support Local’ initiative is giving away £500 worth of independent shop and venue vouchers every week until the end of January.

The new initiative kick-starts on Monday 2nd November, when 10 RGB customers will win a £50 voucher to spend at their local butcher. Then, every Monday until 25th January, RGB will launch a giveaway where prizes will include 10 £50 vouchers to spend at an independent high street store to help with the cost of Christmas presents, five £100 vouchers for use on a holiday cottage in the region, and 10 £50 local attraction vouchers.

Kevin Fenlon, CEO of RGB, commented:

“There are many businesses in our area which have been struggling to survive this year, so it’s vital we do what we can to support each other. In total, we’ll be purchasing and giving away £6,500 worth of vouchers to be used at independent shops, venues and attractions. As well as helping businesses, we hope our Support Local initiative highlights the fantastic array of local companies that are on our doorstep.”

All RGB customers who spend £25 at its branches across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset will have the chance to win a voucher. Full terms and conditions, and a full list of the vouchers that will be on offer each week, will be available on RGB’s website –
