£500 of build­ing equip­ment up for grabs in Selco Stars cam­paign

The Wokingham Paper - - BUSINESS -

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.”

En­tries can be made by fill­ing in a form on the Selco web­site www. sel­cobw.com/stars
