Selco zebra joy is black and white for Ethan

Ethan Hunt from Woolston, won a competition to name the Selco Builders Warehouse-sponsored zebra, with his suggestion of ‘Tooly McTool’ catching the eye of judges.

To celebrate the opening of their branch on the Millbrook Industrial Estate at the end of last year, Selco opened the naming of their zebra up to local youngsters.

‘Tooly McTool’ has taken pride of place on the trail, situated on the junction of Havelock Road and City Centre Road.

Ethan has also won £100 worth of Amazon vouchers from Selco.

Ethan’s mother, Kelly Hunt said: “Ethan was really chuffed when he found out Selco had used his name for its zebra. He couldn’t wait to go and see Tooly McTool for the first time and I think he will want to visit the zebra plenty more times during the school holiday.”

Nick Maloney, branch manager for Selco Southampton said: “We had some excellent suggestions for the name of out Zany Zebra but Ethan’s stood out and really captured the fun around the campaign.

“As we are a builders merchant for tradesmen, the name ‘Tooly McTool’ is perfectly suited to our Selco zebra.”
