Builders' Merchants News

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water

BILLINGSHURST: Chandlers Building Supplies is searching for a brave tradesman or woman to take part in a swim with sharks charity challenge.

The Chandlers' Champion experience will begin with some scuba training, before making a spectacular dive in Chester’s Blue Planet aquarium, which is home to Europe’s largest collection of Sand Tiger Sharks.

With the largest shark being 10 foot long, weighing in at 26 stone and possessing over 250 teeth, it’s certainly something to get your Jaws in to!

Daring tradesmen and women will be able to get up close and personal with the beautiful creatures for free, but would be expected to raise a minimum of £250 for a charity of their choice.

Richard Skinner, Chandlers commercial manager commented: “The Chandlers' Champion campaign is a new and exciting way to raise money for local charities.  It is a fantastic opportunity for someone who has always wanted to try out something a bit different but has never actually got round to it, while raising money for a great cause at the same time.”

Potential Chandlers' Champions can write to Chandlers at or Chandlers Champion, c/o PMW Communications, Stane Court, Stane Street, Billingshurst, West Sussex, RH14 9HP to nominate themselves to take part.
