£500 of building equipment up for grabs in Selco Stars campaign
CHARITIES and community groups across the region are being encouraged to take part in a scheme to gain a share of thousands of pounds to construct a brighter future thanks to a leading builders merchant.
Selco Builders Warehouse, which has 66 branches in the
UK – including one in Reading – is offering organisations which serve their community an opportunity to benefit from its six-month Selco Stars campaign.
Each month, two good causes will receive £500 worth of building materials to improve its facility or assist with a project, with the 12 finalists then going into a public vote for the chance to win £5,000 cash in early 2019.
The scheme is open to any charity or group which provides a benefit to Berkshire and entry can be made by explaining in no more than 100 words how they would use the building materials or money to benefit them.
Carine Jessamine, Selco marketing director, said: “We are fully committed to reinvesting in local communities across the UK and the Selco Stars competition gives us a fantastic opportunity to do that.
“So many organisations in the Berkshire which do sterling work in the community struggle to make building projects or renovations happen due to a lack of funding, so the chance to win materials will offer a huge helping hand.
“On top of that, there is a £5,000 jackpot at the end of the scheme which is often enough money to keep some charities or community groups going for a number of years.”
