Selco ‘putts’ in a big effort for charity push

Published:  07 August, 2014

Selco Builders Warehouse staff, suppliers and customers displayed their golfing prowess to boost a charity push in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support by more than £7,000.

Almost 100 players took part in the charity golf day, which was organised by Selco’s Swansea branch and played at the picturesque Gower Golf Club. The golfers battled for a host of honours, including a team award, nearest the pin and longest drive. A team from Abbey Joinery scooped the first prize in the stableford team competition.

“I am chuffed to bits and really proud of the team,” said Kelvin Coe, Swansea branch manager. “Last year we just dipped our toes in the water to see how it would go, but this year we had more teams involved – 23 in total. It was windy but dry, and everyone had a lot of fun.”

Mr Coe continued: “Everyone has already put their names down for next year, so hopefully it’s something that can just grow and grow and we’ll be able to give even more money to Macmillan. It’s a terrific charity that does so much good work for people with cancer and their families.”

Several other fundraising events are planned across all 34 Selco branches in Wales and England during the rest of the year.

“The entire Selco team has got behind the charity push for Macmillan Cancer Support and the Swansea golf day was another example of that,” said Selco marketing director Helen Cooper.
