Guildford based charity gets a helping hand from The Screwfix Foundation
Cherry Trees, based in Guildford, 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.
Tania Cantoni Head of Fundraising and Communications from Cherry Trees comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. Cherry Trees provides home from home specialist short breaks for children and young people aged 0-19 with a range of disabilities including learning, physical and sensory impairments. The funding will be used towards the cost of developing our sensory suite. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising. It has been a great help to us and we are very grateful.”
Jamie Hampton, Assistant Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Guildford, 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 Cherry Trees.
