Selco Makes Plenty Of Charity Noise

Selco colleagues taking part in a Three Peaks challenge to raise money

One of the leading UK builders merchants has produced a huge fundraising effort by donating more than £100,000 to its nominated charity in 2021.

Selco Builders Warehouse has raised £105,000 for its nominated charity Global’s Make Some Noise.

It means, despite the pandemic limiting traditional charity events, Selco has raised six figure sums for its nominated charity in each of the last two years.

Global’s Make Some Noise improves the lives of disadvantaged people in communities by working with small charities across the UK keeping crucial services going, such as food banks, domestic violence and mental health helplines, carer support, community projects and employment programmes.

Funds were raised through a variety of methods including colleagues participating in charity walks, in-branch bake sales, dress down days, a golf day and darts challenges.

Carine Jessamine, Marketing Director for Selco Builders Warehouse, said: “We are proud to have raised such a significant amount of money for Global’s Make Some Noise during a period of Covid restrictions.

“Many of our traditional fundraising events were either scaled back dramatically or cancelled completely but we were determined to continue our proud record of supporting charities and local communities and came up with creative innovative activities to raise funds.

“Global’s Make Some Noise has done outstanding work throughout the pandemic and we are delighted to have provided support during a difficult time for charities.”

Emma Bradley, Director of Global Charities, said: “It’s a phenomenal effort for Selco to have raised such a substantial amount of money during a global pandemic and we thank all customers, colleagues and suppliers from the bottom of our hearts for their incredible generosity.

“The money will go towards supporting the most vulnerable members of the community and helping them recover from pandemic.”

With hundreds of trade brands always in stock, Selco’s 72 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.
