Selco Launches Third Community Heroes Competition

Selco Community Heroes

Community groups and charities across the UK are being given the chance to build a brighter future thanks to a nationwide initiative.

Leading UK builders merchant Selco Builders Warehouse has launched its Selco Community Heroes competition for the third time.

More than £12,000 in cash and building materials will be up for grabs in the six-month campaign.

The scheme is open to any charity or group which is at the heart of its local community and entry can be made by explaining in no more than 100 words how they would use the building materials or money to benefit them.

Carine Jessamine, Selco marketing director, said: “We have always been committed to supporting the local communities in which our branches are based and that is the case more than ever now. 

“With firstly coronavirus and now the cost of living crisis, this has been an extremely difficult time for charities and community groups and yet they continue to make such a huge impact. 

“So many organisations which do sterling work in their community struggle to make building projects or renovations happen due to a lack of funding, so the chance to win materials will offer a huge helping hand. 

“On top of that, there is a £5,000 jackpot at the end of the scheme which is often enough money to keep some charities or community groups going for a number of years. 

“Whether you are associated with a hard-working local charity, a scout group, a grassroots sports team or a community centre, this is an initiative which offers a great opportunity.” 

The first two overall winners of the competition, previously called Selco Stars, have been Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice and Helping Homeless Veterans. 

With hundreds of trade brands always in stock, Selco’s 73 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 to make life as convenient as possible for tradespeople.
