REGATTA PROFESSIONAL BACKS BAND OF BUILDERS TO HELP TRADESPEOPLE WEAR THEIR SUPPORT ON THEIR SLEEVE

Regatta Professional has teamed up with national construction charity Band of Builders to give people even more opportunity to wear their support on their sleeve.

The company has been announced as Band of Builders’ official workwear supplier, supporting the charity and helping add to its extensive range of merchandise with a BoB-branded line of workwear set to launch next year.

The announcement is the latest support from a major brand for BoB, which helps members of the construction industry affected by illness or injury throughout practical projects, as well as providing a supportive online community for tradespeople and other initiatives to help people in the sector.

BoB and Regatta Professional will work together to help promote the charity and its activities, with initiatives including a new range of BoB-branded workwear available to purchase nationwide.

Band of Builders’ own extensive merchandise range has proved a hit among tradespeople and supporters across the country, and the addition of a Regatta Professional range will allow more people to show their backing for the charity.

Anthony Haber, Managing Director, Regatta Professional, said: “The whole team at Regatta Professional were deeply impressed and moved by the incredible work undertaken by Band of Builders, and their plans for the future to enable them to help more people and families in the industry.

“A sense of corporate responsibility and giving back to the community also pervades our DNA at Regatta Professional therefore we felt a natural synergy with Band of Builders and are proud to be their official workwear supplier.”

Initially formed in 2016 and awarded registered charity status in 2019, Band of Builders has completed a raft of projects to help members of the trade and their families through the completion of practical projects.

Earlier this year the charity helped chartered surveyor Rob Lamb, who was left paralysed after a fall at home, by converting his house in Solihull to make it safe and accessible. BoB’s volunteers’ next project will be to help Andy Dickson in Lennoxtown, Scotland, who was left seriously injured in a car crash.

Tony Steel, Operations Director at Band of Builders, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from the industry and to have Regatta Professional on board as our official workwear supplier is another feather in our cap.

“Workwear has always been incredibly popular with our supporters and having a dedicated workwear range that is from a quality brand and allows them to show their support literally on their sleeve will be a wonderful addition to our own ranges.”
