‘STARS’ Can Give Croydon Charities A BoostJanuary 5th, 2017
Charities and community groups in Croydon are being given the chance to start 2017 in style by applying to win a share of £2,000.
To mark the official opening of its second branch in Croydon on January 16, leading builders merchant Selco Builders Warehouse is searching for two ‘Stars’ to each receive a £1,000 windfall for their organisation.
The scheme is called ‘Selco Stars’ and invites individuals from charities and community groups around the town to explain in no more than 100 words how the £1,000 would benefit the good cause.
To enter people can fill out the simple form via the Selco website at www.selcobw.com/south-croydonstars and entries must be submitted by 5pm on Wednesday January 11.
The 46th Selco branch in the UK will be located on Imperial Way and will create 50 jobs in the process.
Charlie Astridge, branch manager at Selco’s South Croydon branch, said: “We are delighted to mark the arrival of a second Selco in the town by providing this fantastic opportunity for charities and community groups in the area.
“So many organisations do such fantastic community work in and around Croydon and we are very proud to be able to give them the chance to win a sum of money which will make a real difference.”
