Charities in Wales receive supplies boost


Charities in Wales have received £700 worth of food and supplies, thanks to a generous pre-Christmas giveaway by a leading builders merchant. All 67 branches of Selco Builders Warehouse surprised local good causes with food bundles and giſts as the countdown to the festive season begins. Each branch was given at least £250 worth of vouchers, with Selco staff enjoying going wild in the aisles before delivering the goods to their chosen groups. Selco’s two Cardiff branches – in Llanishen and on Hadfield Road – chose to support Te Amelia Trust Farm (£450) and AP Cymru (£250). Te total value of donations nationwide was a huge £19,400. Te response has been overwhelming with Selco


inundated with messages of thanks and support. Carine Jessamine, marketing director at Selco Builders Warehouse, said: “We decided that it would be a great thing to do to give these amazing groups a boost in the lead-up to Christmas. We regularly support charities through our Selco Stars initiative but it was nice to do something completely out of the blue as a one-off surprise at a special time of year.” With hundreds of trade brands always in stock and open seven days and for a minimum of 80 hours per week, Selco’s 67 UK branches are firmly focused on helping tradespeople complete their jobs as quickly and effectively as possible. As well as offering trade services and a café in branch, Selco also has a strong digital presence including Click & Deliver, a 30 minute Click & Collect service and a free Project List app which allows tradespeople to plan, manage, and quote for all jobs – as well as complete purchases - through their smartphone.

Dogs Trust Bridgend is currently home to a number of Old Age Dogs (OADs) looking for cosy homes in time for winter. Toby hasn’t had that much exposure to other dogs, so he can be unsure around them initially. Toby is better suited to be the only dog in his new home but has lived with cats before. Toby loves human company, so would prefer an owner who is around for most of the day who can build up the time he is being leſt. He needs an adult only home. Toby is a sweet boy who deserves a loving forever home. Taking on a dog of any age is a hugely rewarding experience, but as the latest statistics from Dogs Trust reveal that on average they receive one call every six minutes from people wanting to give up their dog, the charity is encouraging people to do their research to make sure they are ready for the long-term commitment that comes with dog ownership. For more information on dog ownership visit www.dogstrust. org.uk/adogisforlife. If you think you’d be able to provide the perfect retirement home for one of these dogs please contact the rehoming centre on 01656 338745.
