The branch manager of a builder’s merchant in Romford has conquered Snowdon as part of a charity challenge for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Nigel Preece, completed the climb along with fellow staff and suppliers of Selco Builders Warehouse, in King George Close, raising £10,000 for Macmillan in the process.

Since 2012, Selco employees, customers and suppliers have raised over £550,000 for Macmillan.
