SELCO FINDS PERFECT RECIPE FOR CHARITY DONATIONJune 24th, 2020
Team Selco displayed their culinary talents to help raise £1,000 for our nominated charity.
Our colleagues were challenged to bake a creative cake – and we donated £10 for each one completed to our charity for 2020, Global’s Make Some Noise.
Prizes were given for three winners, which included desert versions of a Selco delivery truck and our Lightside Distribution Centre.
Global’s Make Some Noise - which is backed by some of the country’s largest radio brands including Heart, Capital, Radio X and Smooth - is a national charity that funds and empowers projects helping disadvantaged children, young people and their families.
The focus is on providing a voice to small charities which otherwise struggle to get heard.
Carine Jessamine, marketing director, said: “Our normal fundraising activity has been heavily affected in the first half of the year because of Covid-19 and the lockdown.
“We tried to think of a creative way to keep colleagues engaged during what has been a difficult time for everyone and this certainly generated a buzz amongst different teams.
“We had 100 entries and that included people from our leadership team, branch network and support centre and even colleagues who were shielding.
“There were some very impressive entries and selecting winners wasn’t easy but the most important aspect of it was that we managed to raise £1,000 for a fantastic charity in Global’s Make Some Noise.”
