A BUILDERS’ merchants in North Devon has raised more than £2,500 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The company held a raffle and auction at a charity golf day at Woodbury Park and nominated the charity as it had supported staff members affected by cancer.

Sian Harris, local fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support said: “We are so grateful for the support we have received from RGB.
“We are totally reliant upon voluntary donations as we receive no government funding.
“The money raised at the event will really make a difference to local people affected by cancer.’
“We support local people affected by cancer by providing medical support through our nurses and health professionals, but also practical support in the form of Welfare and Benefits advisors within the Citizen’s Advice Bureau, who are helping to make claims for people affected by cancer.”
