Selco breaks through new landmark for Macmillan

A charity partnership involving one of the UK’s most prominent builders merchants and Macmillan Cancer Support is celebrating crashing through the £700,000 barrier.

Staff, customers and suppliers of Selco Builders Warehouse have embarked on numerous fundraising projects for Macmillan since 2012.

The sustained push to raise money has paid dividends with the total amount donated to Macmillan standing at £733,000.

The fundraising exploits have seen hundreds of events staged including golf days, participants taking part in epic hike, pictured, bike, walking and running challenges and supporting the annual Macmillan Coffee Morning.

Carine Jessamine, marketing director of Selco Builders Warehouse, said: “We are thrilled to have raised more than £700,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

“That amount seemed a distant dream when we teamed up with Macmillan back in 2012 but the charity has captured the minds of everyone associated with the business.”
