Selco Commits To Volunteering Pledge

Selco Builders Warehouse has further demonstrated its commitment to supporting local communities by offering a paid volunteering day to each of its near 3,000-strong workforce.

All colleagues operating in Selco’s 75 branches and its Support Centre, based in Wythall, near Birmingham, will be given the opportunity to lend support to a community or charity project while still being paid by the leading builders merchant.

It means more than 20,000 hours will be donated by Selco to allow its colleagues to support projects close to their hearts in 2024 on a normal working day.

Sally Kerr, HR Director at Selco, said: “As a business, we have always been committed to supporting the local communities in which we operate and this initiative is another step on our sustainability strategy around community and our people.

“We know that many colleagues would love to engage in active volunteering but are restricted by time.

“Launching this corporate volunteering programme will give colleagues the chance to give back to a project or organisation but within the structure of a routine working day.

“Colleagues will be free to make their own choice on which organisation they would like to volunteer for, and we will offer support and assistance to colleagues who are keen to engage with the programme but maybe struggling to identify an opportunity.

“We are extremely proud to be offering this scheme and look forward to seeing our colleagues playing their part in improving local charities and community organisations.”

Selco has a proud tradition of supporting charities and communities across the UK.

Over the last two years, the builders merchant has raised more than £400,000 for its nominated charity Cancer Research UK.

In addition, Selco donates £12,000 – in building materials and donations - to good causes through its Community Heroes campaign each year.

With hundreds of trade brands always in stock, Selco’s 75 UK branches are firmly focused on helping tradespeople complete their jobs as quickly and effectively as possible.

As well as offering trade services, Selco also has a strong digital presence including Click & Deliver and Click & Collect services and a new app - as well as a ‘Dial & Deliver’ telephone service - to make life as convenient as possible for tradespeople.
