Doncaster based charity gets a helping hand from the Screwfix Foundation
Doncaster Ethnic Minority Regeneration Partnership, based in Doncaster, is celebrating after being awarded £3,500 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.
Peter Singh from Doncaster Ethnic Minority Regeneration Partnership comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. Our charity helps develop and enable the black and minority ethnic (BME) voluntary and community sector to play a meaningful role in the economic, social and economic development of Doncaster and the sub region. To bring together people from the Black and Minority Ethnic Communities and Voluntary Sector to assist in training and developing them, thereby equipping them to respond effectively within their locality. The funding will be used towards the cost of replacing our existing carpet with a durable non-slip flooring. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Mark Field, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Swinton Mexborough, 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 Doncaster Ethnic Minority Regeneration Partnership.
