Selco Builders Warehouse has presented the BMX’s to youngsters from Once Upon A Smile and Genie Networks, two charities based in Stretford working with our partner Global’s Make Some Noise.

The bikes were put together by staff of Selco and their suppliers as part of a team-building exercise at the company’s annual conference in London and have been fully tested.

Marc Lucock, Selco’s human resources and training director, said: “We are extremely proud to provide bikes to children who are supported by two fantastic charities.

“There was a lot of hard work involved in making the bikes but we also had a lot of fun doing it.

“One of our major principles at Selco is to support the communities in which we operate. We have three branches in Manchester – at Ardwick, Baguley and Ashton Moss – so we couldn’t have selected a better location for these bikes to be sent to.

“We hope that the children have plenty of fun riding them around Manchester over this summer and for many years to come.”

The two charities to benefit from the donation form part of Global Radio’s Make Some Noise campaign which offers a voice to small projects across the UK.

Genie Networks provides vital support for children and families with deafness while Once Upon A Smile provides emotional, practical and financial support to bereaved children and their families at their time of need.

Aimee Hayhurst, Make Some Noise’s Partnerships Manager, said: “Selco continue to be fantastic supporters of our charities and this donation is yet another example of the backing the company is providing.

“Virtually every child loves the experience of getting out in the fresh air and on their bikes.

“They look fantastic and there was certainly a huge buzz around both charities when they arrived.”

With hundreds of trade brands always in stock and open seven days a week, Selco’s branches are firmly focused on helping local tradespeople complete their jobs as quickly and effectively as possible.
