Staff and suppliers of a leading builders merchants got into the swing to raise £6,640 for Macmillan Cancer Support at a charity golf day.
Selco Builders Warehouse staged the event at Essendon Country Club in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, with a total of 65 staff and suppliers playing in the event.
The day was organised by Jamie Robinson, manager of Selco’s Tottenham branch on White Hart Lane, and was the latest fundraising initiative staged by Selco as part of their commitment to supporting Macmillan as their official charity partner.
Selco Builders Warehouse has already beaten its target of raising £150,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support in 3 years. The target since 2012 has been to raise £50,000 each year.
The latest £6,640 donation formed part of a £20,000 instalment presented by Selco chief executive Chris Cunliffe to Macmillan as part of the activity around the golf day.
“It was a fantastic day, both for the golf and the evening dinner and auction we had after the round had finished,” said Jamie Robinson, branch manager of Selco Tottenham.
“We were delighted to raise such a significant amount and would like to thank everybody who contributed on the day.
“Macmillan Cancer Support is very close to all of us at Selco Builders Warehouse and there is a real pride at the amount of money raised over the last couple of years.”
The golf day was run on an individual and team Stableford scoring system format, with Marc Roff, of GRS Roadstone, winning the suppliers prize and the Selco award going to senior category manager Mark Fall.
