St Elizabeth’s Centre, based in Much Hadham, is celebrating after receiving £5,000 worth of funding from The Screwfix Foundation, the charity which supports not-for-profit organisations in need across the UK to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities.
St. Elizabeth’s Centre offer vulnerable children and young people individually designed education, care and support services that maximise their opportunities, and this includes having friendly and welcoming spaces.
Kat Pulford from St Elizabeth’s comments: “The Screwfix Foundation have been so supportive over the years, firstly by supporting us with a grant to renovate one of our Children’s Homes, then more recently with the fantastic Reading Garden and outside space. These funds have been so important to St Elizabeth’s, and has enabled our children and young people to enjoy new sensory spaces and enhance their learning.”
Claire Flory, The Screwfix Foundation manager says: “What St Elizabeth’s Centre does is vital for the local community. The much-needed funding used for the reading and Children’s home gardens will be key in supporting the charity’s users. We are delighted to see that our donation has gone towards such an important project, for the benefit of those in need”.
