Generators for Ukraine Appeal

My name is Charlie, a simple carpenter that has been moved by recent events in Eastern Europe. I don’t need to tell you about the appalling situation in Ukraine. A huge proportion of the country is without power, which is affecting hospitals, schools and churches and individual homes and many ordinary individuals. Because of the bombing of the energy infrastructure, hospitals are conducting operations, delivering babies and treating injured soldiers under torchlight. Churches without power are being used as important places to gather for prayer, shelter, support and aid distribution. There are Children’s homes/Centres that are desperately trying to support recently orphaned and disabled children. The list is endless.
It is unacceptable! We CAN help!
We can send aid in the form of a variety of different generators to provide power so they can have the heat and light that is necessary for these organisation to carry out their roles and meet the needs of these desperate people. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

What our customers say​

“C.C.C. Carpentry have been undertaking all of our maintenance for the past year or so. They are absolutely fantastic! Reliable, responsive, they even came in over the Christmas break to do some emergency work for us! The standard of work cannot be faulted, attention to detail and pride in the work they do just shines through.

We are a residential service for adults with learning disability and autism. Charlie and Joe are wonderful with the residents, they remember names, chat and always interact in such a positive way.

We wouldn’t be without C.C.C Carpentry now!”

Sue Crowther
Lifeworks Charity Ltd. Torquay

“CCC Carpentry have completed projects for the schools within The Trust, both directly as carpenters and via main contractors as project management. The standard of work, from design to completion by CCC Carpentry could not have been better. Communication was always clear and timescales were all met, leading to a highly reliable service experience.

I will without doubt be asking CCC Carpentry to quote for future projects within the schools.”

Damien Stothard
Estates & Services Manager, Learning Academy Partnership

“The Bartons have, over the years, engaged Charlie’s expertise on a number of occasions, most recently to carry out some internal alterations at our home. Charlie and his team are excellent workmen, arriving when expected, keen to advise and make suggestions, and completing the work to a great standard – and they don’t consume too much tea!”

Paul and Tessa Barton

“I have known Charlie Allansen for over 30 years and have always found him a good and hard worker and a totally reliable and trustworthy person. His standard of work is very good and he has a full knowledge of building procedures, defects and remedies. He carried out various projects at St. Matthias Church , Torquay whilst I was chair of the fabric committee, all to a satisfactory standard.”

John Hart FRICS

“Thank you so much CCC Carpentry for the amazing transformation of the exterior balcony and shed etc. to my seaside / lakeside cottage at Torcross, which had become so terribly rotten and run-down, especially after Storm Emma in March 2018, to a place of real pleasure and fun for me and friends to relax and enjoy in now. All due to Charlie and Joe’s outstanding care and patience, and individual design as time progressed, willing to accept my constant change of ideas, nothing too much trouble to adapt to, to come to a perfect finale!!

Now so many locals stare in wonder at it (including change of exterior colour by local painter, now raspberry and soft sea colours to compliment the whole design.)

Thank you so much guys – worth all the sweat and toil, and now good friends also.”


“This was our first experience of having bespoke furniture made for us. Charlie was so helpful in fulfilling the ‘vision’, from the early planning stage, through making decisions about colour and fitting. Excellent communication throughout the process, keeping us updated on progress and checking the small details. Our room has been transformed and we love having a beautiful, unique piece of furniture made just for us!”

Sara Allen

“I used CCC Carpentry to reconfigure and install garden fencing, and was very pleased with the service provided. Charlie’s professional in preparing a competitive quotation , along with his attention to detail and the quality of workmanship, gave me a very satisfactory outcome.

I would be very happy to use the services of CCC Carpentry again, and would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this company to others.”

Cecil Johnston

“After struggling with a sticking back door and having planed it ‘better’ many times I finally called in a professional. The door had had a good life and I agreed with Charlie that the time had come not only for a new door but also for the rotting frame. Charlie measured up and sent me a written estimate. The new frame was made off site and then fitted. The door was fitted on the same day. Charlie then painted the door.

The result is perfect. The estimate was adhered to and Charlie was a pleasure to have in the house.

A truly skilled professional with high standards at sensible prices.”


“Charlie’s work is exceptional. He was kind and considerate to me as the householder. Prompt and a very tidy worker. My friends and neighbours have all commented on my lovely kitchen.”

Mrs R

“Charlie must be good as we keep using his services! A great carpenter and lovely guy.”
