Almondsbury based charity gets a helping hand from The Screwfix Foundation
KIDS, based in Almondsbury, is celebrating after being awarded £4,753 worth of funding from The Screwfix Foundation, a charity which supports projects to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities for those in need.
Sarah Cleave from KIDS comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. KIDS is a national charity, founded over 45 years ago, providing a wide range of support services to disabled children, young people and their families. We support children with any disability from birth to 25 years of age. We offer our support to the whole family with the aim of giving disabled children a brighter future. The funding will be used towards the cost of installing a new gate and constructing a gravel area for garden sheds in our play garden. We are also planning to have raised beds so that our wheelchair users can have access to planting vegetable and flowers so all the young people and staff can enjoy the new garden. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Steph Clark, Assistant Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Almondsbury, comments: “We’re really pleased that one of our local charities has been awarded funding by The Screwfix Foundation. Staff from across the business have held a variety of fundraising events to raise vital funds for The Screwfix Foundation, so it’s fantastic to see the money we have raised being invested back into such a worthwhile community project.”
The Screwfix Foundation, which launched in April 2013 donates much needed funding to help a variety of local projects throughout the UK, from repairing buildings and improving community facilities, to improving the homes of people living with sickness or disability.
It also works closely with two national charity partners, Barnardo’s children’s charity and Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as supporting smaller, local registered charities like KIDS.
