SELCO AND BRONCOS TO PROVIDE CHARITY BOOSTMay 16th, 2013
Selco Builders Warehouse and London Broncos rugby league team will unite in the name of charity later this month.
The Broncos home mouth-watering match with Wigan Warriors on Saturday 18th May has been selected as the nominated charity match for the season. As main club sponsors to the Broncos, it is Selco’s official charity, Macmillan Cancer Support, who will benefit from the funds raised at the Twickenham Stoop stadium on that day.
“It’s great to be able to join with the London Broncos to stage an official charity match and the aim is two-fold,” said Selco Head of Marketing Helen Cooper.
“We’re hoping that supporters dig deep to support the charity financially but it’s also helping the charity to raise awareness of the great work it carries out and how it can help families affected by cancer.
“Wigan Warriors remain a huge name in rugby league so it’s an ideal opportunity to stage our Broncos charity game to reach out to as many people as possible.”
A percentage of ticket sales will go direct to Macmillan, while supporters will have an extra chance to donate via bucket collections on the day and using a dedicated text number. Colleagues from across Selco’s 18 branches in London will be assisting on the day, and Selco hope for a bumper day of fund-raising as they aim to reach their target of generating £100,000 by the end of 2013 for Macmillan.
Events held throughout 2012 and the first half of this year has ensured more than £60,000 has already been raised.
