Selco Builders Warehouse is supporting a Warrington Scout group who are building a community garden after the club won £500 worth of materials from the merchant through its Community Heroes campaign.


The scout group will build a community garden close to its Fairfield Community Centre base which will include a growing area and a wildlife pond.


13th Warrington East Scout Group will also be competing later this year with 11 other Community Heroes winners in a public vote to bag £5,000 in cash.


Sarah O’Neill, a leader at the group, said: “We’re over the moon to win this fantastic prize from Selco.


“We’ve been planning a community garden for some time and these materials will allow us to start the project.

“It will be a tremendous asset for the local community, giving them the chance to grow fruit and vegetables. There will also be a wildlife pond which will encourage nature to thrive and will be a hotbed for honeybees.


“We are located in one of the poorest areas of Warrington so funds are extremely limited. Having the backing of Selco is a very welcome boost.”


Carine Jessamine, Selco marketing director, said: “Community Heroes is all about helping good causes across the country as they embark on exciting new projects – and that is certainly the case here. We are delighted to be able to help.


“We’re looking forward to welcoming the scout group into our Warrington branch and helping them select all the materials they need to make this community garden a reality.”
