Eastbourne-based charity inaugurates a new kitchen with a £3000 grant from the Screwfix Foundation


The Chaseley Trust, based in Eastbourne, is celebrating after receiving £3000 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. 

The Chaseley Trust provides specialist, complex nursing care for adults with a wide range of neurological and physical disabilities, including supporting them with welcoming spaces that reflect their needs. 

Emma Rich-Spice, CEO of The Chaseley Trust, comments: “We are so grateful to the Screwfix Foundation and the support that they have given us. Having a clean, attractive and useable therapy kitchen that looks appealing will encourage residents to use this facility. The kitchen will aid their physical recovery, as well as their mental well-being by having an area that they can trust.” 

Claire Flory, The Screwfix Foundation Manager, says: “What the Chaseley Trust does is vital for the local community. The much-needed funding used for a new kitchen adapted for wheelchair users will enable residents to use the space to prepare and cook food, undertake their own laundry and increase their independence. 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.
