A HALESOWEN roofing suppliers is selling saws in aid of its appeal to raise £50,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

£1 from the sale of Chandlers Roofing Supplies’ Chandlers £50k Challenge saws will go towards the charity campaign.

The appeal is in honour of Chandlers’ employee Rob Sadler, a Cystic Fibrosis sufferer himself.

Rob not only marked 30 years of Chandlers employment last year, but more significantly turned 50 in December; those with Cystic Fibrosis are not expected to live beyond their 30s.

Dave Horton, branch manager at Chandlers Halesowen, said: “So far a fantastic £28,000 has been raised for the Chandlers £50k Challenge, which we are all thrilled about.

"The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is a fantastic charity that has really helped our colleague Rob. £1,300 of that total has been raised from people purchasing the charity DIY items and we would like to thank everyone who bought a saw, tape measure or pencil.”

The Chandlers £50k Challenge saws cost £1.66 plus VAT.
