Julia’s House, based in Devizes 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.
Julia’s House Wiltshire Fundraising Manager Ian Wadley comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity. Julia’s House is an award-winning children’s hospice charity dedicated to bringing comfort and care to families across Dorset and Wiltshire. We provide practical and emotional support, tailoring our care to the needs of each individual child and their family, providing frequent and regular support in their own homes, in the community or at our hospice. The funding will be used towards the cost of building an en-suite bathroom for one of our suites. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Sam Holman Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Devizes 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.
