Selco Builders Warehouse raised £6,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support
A builder’s warehouse in Tottenham raised almost £6,000 at a charity golf day to support people suffering from cancer.
Staff and suppliers at Selco Builders Warehouse, in White Hart Lane, took to the fairways to play a few holes of golf to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Nearly 70 players took part in the event at Redbourn Golf Club in Hertfordshire.
It was the latest charity event organised and staged by Selco in the company’s attempt to raise £100,000 for Macmillan by the end of 2013.
Awards were given out for the best team, the shot nearest the pin and longest drive.
Tony Saunders, from Regency Press, won the individual competition and was also part of the winning team.
The prize for the top performer on the day went to the Darrell Carter, general manager at Selco's Old Kent Road, Southwark branch.
Jamie Robinson, the manager of the Tottenham branch, said: “It was a fantastic day and everyone was delighted with how it went.”
“We thought that if we could raise £5,000 we would have had a really good day so to supersede that was brilliant.
“All the suppliers who competed made a donation to the golf event or the auction so we were very grateful to them for making the event the success it was.”
The day ended with Selco managing director Chris Cunliffe presenting the latest instalment of £20,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support representative Emily Morgan.
This brought the total already donated this year to £75,000.
