Selco raises cash for NSPCC Childline Appeal

The money was raised through a range of initiatives and activities by employees of the trade-only merchant, part of the Grafton Group, from corporate e-cards and pin badges to Father Christmas Santa letters and raffles.

The cheque was presented to the charity at the Stirchley branch by managing director, Malcolm Aldridge, who said: “As part of the Children’s Voice Appeal, NSPCC fundraisers in Birmingham need to raise £4.2 million over the next three years. We think this is a very important cause that affects millions of children.

“Our staff have been very committed to helping the charity and I am proud that their efforts have raised so much. I think raising in excess of £22,000 is something to be proud of. We shall continue our efforts and hope that more children get the advice and support they need as a result of our fundraising,” he said.

Richard Shawcross of the NSPCC said: “We’re so grateful to all the staff at Selco for their generosity and support to making a real difference to the lives of vulnerable and abused children.

“As 85% of the NSPCC’s income comes from voluntary donations and fundraising, none of the services and projects would be possible without the continued generosity of the public.” he added.
