Selco provides building materials to help the Primrose Hospice sell more items online to boost funds

A SOUTH Birmingham builders’ merchant has helped the Primrose Hospice maximise its fund-rasing efforts by providing materials so the charity could create an office to co-ordinate its online sales from.

Timber and internal doors were donated by Selco Builders’ Warehouse for the hospice’s Headless Cross shop in Redditch.

While the charity makes most of its donated items in its shops, some stock is more suitable being sold on ebay and storage space was needed for it.

Angelique Dalton, the Primrose’s chief operating officer, said: “We are hugely grateful to the donation made by Selco Builders Warehouse.

“We have had to dramatically adjust the way we work during Covid-19 and the lockdown period has, like other charities, placed a significant drain on resources so support such as that we are receiving from Selco Builders Warehouse is invaluable.”

Michael Mushen, branch manager of Selco Stirchley, said she was aware first hand of the outstanding work the Primrose Hospice did.

“Only a very small percentage of the total funds required for the hospice to be operational each year comes from Government support and the rest comes through fund-raising and donations so we were delighted to offer our assistance.

“One of our big commitments at Selco is to, where we can, support the communities in which we operate and this donation is further evidence of that.”

All of Primrose’s services are provided free of charge to the patients and their families, as well as bereaved adults and children.
