Friends of Carronhill School receive a helping hand from the Screwfix Foundation

Carronhill School, based in Stonehaven, is celebrating after being awarded £5,000 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.

Katie Timney Head Teacher of Carronhill School comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity. The Friends of Carronhill are a registered Charity raising awareness and funding for activities and equipment for the pupils of Carronhill School. The funding was used to put towards providing a wheelchair accessible swing and roundabout to the playground at the school. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Rachel MacKay Deputy Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Aberdeen, 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 Friends of Carronhill School.
