Selco scheme backs “kind-hearted tradespeople”

A new national campaign designed to reward kind-hearted professional tradespeople who have gone above and beyond the call of duty has been launched by Selco Builders Warehouse.

The Extra Mile Awards have been established to recognise those working in the trade who have given extra support to an individual or a wider local community in need. Members of the public are invited to nominate tradespeople who they believe are deserving of the award between now and July 31 by visiting and providing a short 100-word overview.

Judges will pick three tradespeople to win the Extra Mile Awards, with each winning £1,000 worth of credit to use at Selco, which has 75 branches across the UK. The individuals nominating the successful tradespeople will also receive £100 worth of shopping vouchers.

Carine Jessamine, the merchant’s Marketing Director, said: “We serve hundreds of thousands of tradespeople across the country every year and we know many do fantastic work over and above their day job, using their skills to support local individuals and communities who need it the most.

“We wanted to do something to recognise the incredible efforts and acts of kindness of tradespeople and the Extra Mile Awards do exactly that.

Carine added: “Over the last few years we have had the coronavirus pandemic and the cost of living crisis which have created incredibly difficult periods for people to get through and many tradespeople have shown their support in numerous ways, including carrying out work on jobs or projects free of charge and giving of their time.

“We are looking for any goodwill gestures by tradespeople which have made a real difference and we know we will receive many outstanding stories which will give our judges real headaches selecting the winners.”
