Selco fundraising receives special commendation in awards

March 13th, 2024
Selco Charity partner cancer research UK

Our fantastic charity efforts for Cancer Research UK have been recognised.

We are proud to have donated more than £400,000 to the charity over the last two years and Cancer Research UK has honoured us with a Special Commendation in its Corporate Fundraising Team of the Year category.

It is the second time we have received the accolade which forms part of Cancer Research UK’s annual Flame of Hope awards, celebrating the achievements of the charity’s most inspiring and outstanding fundraisers and volunteers.

Our customers, colleagues and suppliers have joined forces to play their part in helping beat cancer through a series of fundraising events over the past two years.

These have included walking, abseiling, cycling and running challenges, golf days and special themed events at our 75 UK branches.

Alison Wong, head of communications and sustainability at Selco, said: “It’s been an incredible two years of fundraising for Cancer Research UK and we are thrilled to have raised more than £400,000.

“Having Cancer Research UK as our nominated charity truly resonates with everyone connected with Selco and the engagement we have seen around fundraising activity has been exceptional.

“We are continuing our support for this fantastic charity into 2024 and we looking forward to raising more vital funds to make a real difference to the research it carries out.”

Money raised helps Cancer Research UK analyse potential prevention and treatment of cancer through the work of over 4,000 doctors, nurses and scientists.

Jayme Shepherd, relationship manager at Cancer Research UK, said: “The support Selco have provided the charity has been first-class and the team is fully deserving of recognition in our Flame of Hope Awards.

“Throughout Selco, there is a genuine commitment and enthusiasm for fundraising and that is illustrated by the fact that the company has raised a phenomenal amount of money over the last two years.

“Our progress as a charity relies on the incredible dedication and commitment of volunteers and supporters like Selco – without whom we would not be able to fund our life-saving work.”
