CHANDLERS Building Supplies is looking for a charity to partner with for 2018.

The family-owned builders merchant is based in Lewes

Chandlers is asking charities in the construction sector to send in a short statement outlining why their organisation merits should be considered.

This follows a hugely successful and award-winning partnership with Chailey Heritage Foundation in 2017.

Sue McKinney of Chandlers Buildings Supplies said: “Our charity partnerships have generated huge benefits for the selected charity.

“These partnerships are not just based on fundraising or donations, they also focus on developing broader marketing and PR campaigns to support the aims of the selected charity.”

The builders merchant’s 2017 charity partnership scooped Best Community Initiative at the Builders’ Merchants News Awards and ranged from developing a comprehensive public awareness campaign to fundraising and marketing support.

Interested charities need to send a very brief email to in the first instance - outlining who they are and why they deserve the opportunity for 2018.

Deadline for receipt of emails is February 14.

Chandlers Building Supplies is a family owned builders merchants with 13 branches throughout London, the South East and the West Midlands.
