Builder’s merchant Ridgeons has donated thousands of pounds worth of building materials, plumbing goods, and kitchen and bathroom supplies to a DIY SOS project in Mildenhall, Suffolk.

The materials have been used in a project to transform the home of Simon Dobbin, the Cambridge United fan who was left with permanent brain damage after a ferocious, unprovoked attack in Southend in March 2015.

Employees from Ridgeons’ Newmarket branch delivered the supplies earlier this month including engineering bricks, concrete blocks, fast set levelling compound, cement, building sand, plaster and ballast.

Ian Northen, CEO of Ridgeon Group, said: “We are thrilled to be involved in this DIY SOS project to transform the house for Simon and his family who have faced huge challenges and deserve a fantastic home.

“It makes us proud to be part of the larger team creating an improved quality of life for the Dobbin family.”
