He said: "We have done everything from a competition for primary schools for Walk to School week giving out 850 high-visibility vests, to donating £10,000 to the RNLI last year for Torbay Lifeboat Week, and raising £6,500 through a sponsored kayak by our staff and some of our directors. We also supported Lupton House with their Winter Wonderland, as well as lots of local sports teams.
"We have been community conscious since we started as brand awareness comes through supporting local charities and a lot of individuals who are doing a lot of good stuff."
Mr Winser said they had entered the sales and marketing category having been runner-up for three years. They have also been runner-up in a national award and won the national independent builders' merchant website of the year.
"We are determined to win this year," he said.
