Paul’s Place Project gets a helping hand from the Screwfix Foundation
Paul’s Place based in Bristol, 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.
Sue Hawker, Senior co-ordinator for Paul’s Place comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity. We run a day facility filled with fun and laughter five days a week filled that meet the needs of physically, cognitively and sensory impaired adults. Respite services and carers’ services also provided. The funding will be used towards building a new kitchen on the annex of Paul’s Place. Purpose built for adults with physical, sensory and cognitive impairment, volunteers, staff and carers. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Craig Sharples, Manager of the Screwfix store in Bristol, 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.
