Glasgow based charity gets a helping hand from The Screwfix Foundation
The Coming Home Centre based in Glasgow, is celebrating after being awarded £1,500 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.
Ian Hopkins, Operations Manager from The Coming Home Centre comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. The Coming Home Centre supports veterans who have served in recent conflicts who suffer mental health problems caused by their time in the forces. The funding will help The Coming Home Centre acquire tools for veterans to make furniture as part of their therapy. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Simon McCaig, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Glasgow- Kinning Park comments: “We’re really pleased that one of our local charities has been awarded funding by The Screwfix Foundation. Staff from our store have been involved in 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 facilities in deprived areas, to decorating 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 The Coming Centre.
The next round of funding will be awarded in early 2016. Relevant projects from across Glasgow are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at screwfixfoundation.com.
