Selco drills down for the future

Builders merchant Selco has made a donation of drills to the Manchester College’s School of Construction

Trainee carpenters and joiners at have received Bosch Combi GSB 18V-21 drills to help with the practical elements of their course.

Gary Wallworth, course tutor at Manchester College’s School of Construction, said: “This is an incredibly generous donation from Selco and the drills will be used by up to 60 youngsters who are on our carpentry and joinery courses. Our existing tools were very old and were reaching the stage where they were unreliable, which is a real problem when we are trying to build the skillsets of our students.

“All of our students support Band of Builders and they are benefitting from the input of highly skilled and committed tradespeople from around the country through that relationship.

Carine Jessamine, marketing director for Selco Builders Warehouse, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the tradespeople of the future through our connections with Band of Builders.

“I’m sure the drills will be put to good use and high-quality joiners and carpenters will emerge from the course.”
