We’re thrilled to announce Cancer Research UK as our new charity partner for 2022.

During the year, we will stage a range of fundraising events in support of Cancer Research UK, which funds doctors, nurses and scientists to carry out pioneering research to help provide a solution to defeating cancer.

We have a strong reputation for our fundraising exploits and, despite the pandemic, raised in excess of £100,000 for our previous charity partner Global’s Make Some Noise in each of the last two years.

Our charity coffers have already been boosted for Cancer Research UK with a donation of £5,861.78 being made from sales of carrier bags over recent months.

Carine Jessamine, marketing director of Selco, said: “We are thrilled to be supporting Cancer Research UK in its fantastic work to try and find the answers to an illness which touches the lives of each and every one of us in some way.

“Every pound we raise will help fund vital research and that will be the huge motivation behind our fundraising during what will be a busy year of charity activity.

“Cancer Research UK was selected by a vote from our colleagues and we are excited by our new charity partnership. Along with the support from our generous customers and suppliers, we hope to raise a significant amount of money and play our part in supporting vital medical research.”

Georgia McCormack, divisional manager of Cancer Research UK, said: “We are incredibly grateful to Selco staff for voting for us and helping achieve our ambition of seeing three in four people survive their cancer by 2034.

“Our progress relies on the incredible dedication and commitment of volunteers and supporters like this - without whom we would not be able to fund our life-saving work. One in two of us will get cancer in our lifetime. All of us can support the research that will beat it.”
