Customers, suppliers and staff of Selco Builders Warehouse’s Swansea branch took to the fairways of Gower Golf Club to raise more than £11,000 in a charity golf day.

A total of £11,009 was raised for Selco’s nominated charity of the year, Cancer Research UK, with 80 players in attendance.

The golfers battled for a host of honours, including a team award, nearest the pin and longest drive. Team Dawes scooped the first prize in the Texas Scramble team competition.

The money raised means Selco has contributed almost £100,000 to Cancer Research UK in 2023 alone, on top of the £200,000 donated to the charity last year.

All money raised will help Cancer Research UK’s studies into the prevention and treatment of cancer through the work of over 4,000 doctors, nurses and scientists

Jason Delaney, Deputy Branch Manager at Selco Swansea, organised the event. He said: “I’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who attended our golf day, as well as those who supported in other ways such as sponsoring holes and donating prizes.

“It was a brilliant, sunny day with some top golf on show – as well as one or two wayward shots!

“To raise such a huge amount of money for a great cause is really pleasing. The tireless work of Cancer Research UK makes a tremendous difference to people with cancer and their families so to play a part in supporting their efforts is a real honour.”
