Deaf Links gets a helping hand from the Screwfix Foundation
Deaf Links, based in Dundee, 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 Deaf Links, people are committed every day to guaranteeing people suffering with impaired hearing receive the support they require, and this includes having spaces available that reflect their needs.
Alana Harper, CEO at Deaf Links says: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for believing in our project. Our community hall really needed new flooring, suitable for everyone. The £5,000 of funds that the Screwfix Foundation has donated to us have been invaluable in making our dream come true and we want to thank all Screwfix customers and staff for their precious donations”.
Claire Flory, The Screwfix Foundation manager says: “What Deaf Links does is vital for the local community, and we are delighted that the much-needed funding will be used for new flooring in the community hall and will be key in supporting those in need. It is great to see the donation go towards such an important project!”.
Set up in 2013 after recognising the need to give back, The Screwfix Foundation has raised a staggering £10m for good causes and helped over 2100 local registered charities and not for profit organisations across the UK, with refurbishments and building improvements.
Charities and not for profit organisations with relevant projects are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at screwfixfoundation.com.
