Birmingham-based charity receives £5000 grant from the Screwfix Foundation to renovate Drop-In Cancer Support Centre
Help Harry Help Others, based in the Tile Cross area of Birmingham, is celebrating after receiving £5000 worth of funding from The Screwfix Foundation, the charity which supports not-for-profit organisations in need across the UK to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities.
Help Harry Help Others provides support to children and adult cancer patients and this includes having spaces that reflect their needs.
Georgina Moseley, founder of Help Harry Help Others comments: “We are extremely grateful for the grant from The Screwfix Foundation which will allow us to renovate our Drop-In Cancer Support Centre that now supports over 1,100 families.
“With so many users of the centre, our building looks tired very quickly. So, having funds to be able to keep our building looking welcoming for those we serve, the most vulnerable, is a huge help, especially through such challenging times. Thank you for allowing us to keep a nice environment for all our service users.”
Claire Flory, the Screwfix Foundation Manager, says: “What Help Harry Help Others does is vital for the local community. The much-needed funding used to renovate the building 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 2,400 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.
