Selco creative bake raises £1,000

Colleagues at merchant Selco Builders Warehouse have displayed their culinary talents to help raise £1,000 for nominated charity, Global’s Make Some Noise.

Each baked a creative cake and Selco donated £10 for each one completed.

Prizes were given for three winners, which included desert versions of a Selco delivery truck and the company’s Lightside Distribution Centre.

Global’s Make Some Noise is a national charity that funds and empowers projects helping disadvantaged children, young people and their families.

Carine Jessamine, marketing director for Selco Builders Warehouse, said: “Our normal fundraising activity has been heavily affected in the first half of the year because of COVID-19 and the lockdown.

“We tried to think of a creative way to keep colleagues engaged during what has been a difficult time for everyone and this certainly generated a buzz amongst different teams.

“We had 100 entries and that included people from our leadership team, branch network and support centre and even colleagues who were shielding.

“There were some very impressive entries and selecting winners wasn’t easy but the most important aspect of it was that we managed to raise £1,000 for a fantastic charity in Global’s Make Some Noise.”
