Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice has been given a boost towards a building project.

The hospice has been named as one of the winners of the Selco Stars scheme, organised by Selco Builders Warehouse.

The charity has won £500 worth of building materials, which it will use to purchase products to help build a new walkway to its gardens.

Louise Bishop, fundraiser for the hospice, said: “We are fortunate to have a stunning woodland setting for the hospice but that means you have to go down a steep slope to reach our gardens.

“We need a new path to improve access, particularly for those in wheelchairs or who are physically frail.

“Winning the Selco prize will go a very long way towards helping us make access to the gardens available to all, which will be a huge benefit to people using the hospice."

Selco Stars is open to any charity or group which provides a benefit to the local area and entries can be made by explaining in no more than 100 words how they would use the building materials or money to benefit them.
