Happy Days gets a helping hand from the Screwfix Foundation
Happy Days, based in Halifax, is celebrating after receiving £5,000 worth of funding from The Screwfix Foundation, the Screwfix charity which supports not for profit organisations in need across the UK to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities.
At Happy Days, people are committed every day to guaranteeing homeless and vulnerable people receive the support they require, and this includes having spaces tailored to their needs.
Dave Fawcett, founder and CEO of Happy Days, said: “Happy Days supports people who are experiencing homelessness by providing them with the practical and emotional support they need, including accommodation, food and a sense of community.
“The funding from Screwfix will make a real and positive impact on people’s lives and will be used towards a new Summerhouse for one of our communities where our residents can meet, socialise and enjoy time outdoors.”
Claire Flory, The Screwfix Foundation manager says: “The work Happy Days does for people who are vulnerable, giving them hope and a place to rebuild their lives, is inspiring. The much-needed funding will provide a valuable community space for those in need. It’s amazing to see that this donation goes towards such an important project”.
Set up in 2013 after recognising the need to give back, The Screwfix Foundation has raised a staggering £10m for good causes and helped over 2100 local registered charities and not for profit organisations across the UK with refurbishments and building improvements.
Charities and not for profit organisations with relevant projects are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at screwfixfoundation.com.
