Selco Builders Warehouse is joining forces with London Broncos, the rugby league team it sponsors, for a major charity push next weekend.
The London Broncos’ big Super League home clash with St Helens on Saturday, July 19 at The Hive has been selected as the club’s official charity fixture of the season.
Money raised from the day’s activities will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support, the official nominated charity of Selco Builders Warehouse.
It is hoped a bumper crowd will be attracted to the game with a percentage of the money from each ticket sold donated to Macmillan, which provides practical, medical and financial support for people diagnosed with, or affected by, cancer.
Supporters will also have a chance to donate via bucket collections around the ground on the day.
As the two teams run out for the start of the match, children from Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Primary School in Hertfordshire will perform a guard of honour for the teams before taking their seats for the game with tickets donated by Selco Builders Warehouse.
Helen Cooper, marketing director for Selco Builders Warehouse, said: “It’s great to be able to link up with the London Broncos to stage an official charity match.
“We are hoping that Broncos supporters turn out in good numbers for this huge game – and dig deep into their pockets to support a fantastic charity in the shape of Macmillan.
“We are very proud to have supported Macmillan since 2012 and have already raised more than £100,000, with a pledge to add an additional £50,000 this year.
“Hopefully by the end of the day we will be celebrating a great Broncos performance and a fantastic day of fundraising for Macmillan.”
London Broncos and Selco teamed up for a charity fixture last year, raising more than £3,500 for Macmillan on the day of the game against Wigan Warriors.
