Let Us Play gets a helping hand from the Screwfix Foundation
Let Us Play, based in Wolverhampton, 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.
Claire McKen from Let Us Play comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. The charity was set up by a group of parents with disabled children to provide sports, arts and play activities for children with special needs and disabilities. The funding will be used towards renovation of our new premises. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Dan Hill, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Wolverhampton, 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 Let Us Play.
