COVENTRY community groups, clubs and charities have a chance to take a share of a £12,000 community giveaway.

Selco Builders Warehouse is running its fourth community heroes competition – between now and August, winners will be able to speng £500 at their nearest Selco.

Following a public vote, one overall winner will win £5,000 cash and the runner up getting £1,000.

Open to any charity or organisation, entry can be made by explaining in no more than 100 words how the building materials or money would benefit its members.

Alison Wong, head of communications and sustainability at Selco, said: “We’re delighted to announce the return of Community Heroes as we strive to support good causes across the country.

“It has been such a difficult few years for community groups and charities as first Covid-19 hit, followed by a rocky economic environment.

“For many much-loved groups, maintenance and building work has been put on the backburner as there simply is no money left in the budget. The support of Community Heroes can make a massive difference and help these organisations to carry out tangible, long-lasting improvements to their facilities.

“We would welcome entries from any group that benefits the local community, whether that’s a scout group, a grassroots sports club, a community centre or anything similar.

“This is always an extremely popular initiative and I am certain that will be the case again.”
