Arch receives generous donation from the Screwfix Foundation

Arch , based in Stoke-on-Trent, is celebrating after being awarded £1,730 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.

Toni Starkey from comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. Arch is a registered charity which connects with people at difficult times in their lives, providing a range of accommodation and support services across Staffordshire. The funding has been used to convert an unused store cupboard into a dedicated counselling room for our Pointon House service. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Scott Pritchard, Assistant Manager of the Screwfix store in Stoke-on-Trent, 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 Arch.
