Belfast Charity receives £5,000 grant from The Screwfix Foundation
Crossroads Care NI, based in Belfast, is celebrating after receiving £5,000 worth of funding from The Screwfix Foundation, the Screwfix charity which supports not for profit organisations in need across the UK to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities.
At Crossroads Care, people are committed every day to support young carers who take on substantial care and responsibilities, and this includes having spaces where they can be trained.
Richard Best CEO from Crossroads Care NI comments: “We are so grateful to the Screwfix Foundation and the support that they have given us. Our building has needed to be repaired for a number of years, but we have not been able to direct the funds to fix the problems. We are really happy to finally be able to fix the ongoing issues in our building which will allow us to continue to provide help in our local community.”
Claire Flory, the Screwfix Foundation Manager says: “What Crossroads Care does is vital for the local community in Belfast. The much-needed funding used to repair the building where training, operations, and the children activity centre are based will be key in supporting the charity’s users. We are delighted to see that our donation has gone towards such an important project, for the benefit of those in need”.
Set up in 2013 after recognising the need to give back, The Screwfix Foundation has donated over £11m for good causes and helped over 2,300 local registered charities and not for profit organisations across the UK.
Charities and not for profit organisations with relevant projects are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at screwfixfoundation.com.
