Selco Builders Warehouse is celebrating raising a mammoth £200,000 for Cancer Research UK.
The nationwide builders merchant has been supporting the charity for the last year with customers, colleagues and suppliers joining forces to help beat cancer through a series of fundraising events. These have included taking on the Thames Path and Lake District Peaks Walking Challenges, cycle rides, golf days and special themed occasions at Selco’s 74 branches across the UK.
Money raised will help Cancer Research UK’s research into the prevention and treatment of cancer through the work of over 4,000 doctors, nurses and scientists.
Carine Jessamine, marketing director of Selco Builders Warehouse, said: “It has been a monumental year of fundraising and a huge effort from everyone involved.
“To be able to raise such a sizeable amount of money for Cancer Research UK is something everyone associated with Selco is extremely proud of.
“Right from the moment colleagues voted for Cancer Research UK to be our nominated partner, we have seen fantastic engagement in fundraising.
“Nearly everyone has seen their lives touched by cancer in one way or another and to be able to help Cancer Research UK fund vital research has been a real motivating factor.
“We look forward to raising more funds for this brilliant charity in 2023.”
