Selco golf day tees up £15,000 charity boost

July 21st, 2023
Selco charity golf day

Birdies, eagles and fundraising were the order of the day when Selco Builders Warehouse held its annual charity golf day.

A total of £15,000 was raised when the popular event was staged at the West Midlands Golf Club in Solihull.

The money raised has been donated to our nominated charity Cancer Research UK and means we have contributed almost £90,000 to the organisation in 2023 alone.

The golf day saw 112 golfers take to the course in dry and sunny conditions, with colleagues from our 75 branches and Support Centre taking on suppliers in a fourball betterball matchplay format.

Carine Jessamine, marketing director of Selco, said: “The golf day has become a true highlight of our annual fundraising calendar.

“It’s fantastic opportunity for our colleagues and suppliers to meet up in a relaxed environment and there is a lot of fun had, while raising an incredible amount of money for a charity which is close to the hearts of all at Selco.

“The endless R&D work carried out by Cancer Research UK is truly remarkable and being able to play our small part to help fund those pioneering efforts is something we are very proud of.”

Our latest fundraising comes on the back donating £200,000 to Cancer Research UK last year.

All money raised will help Cancer Research UK’s research into the prevention and treatment of cancer through the work of over 4,000 doctors, nurses and scientists.

Georgia McCormack, divisional fundraising manager at Cancer Research UK, said: “We are thrilled that Selco remain a very committed and active partner and continue to raise money which is going to make a huge difference to the work we can do.

“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.”
