Remark! Community Gets a Helping Hand From The Screwfix Foundation
Remark! Community, based in London 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.
Jessica Wilde, Head of Remark! Community comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. Remark! Community is a charity set up by Deaf people for Deaf people. Our aim is to promote equality and relieve social isolation and exclusion for Deaf people. Assist older Deaf people with financial hardship, and promote mental wellbeing amongst Deaf people. The funding will be used towards the cost of refurbishing our community centre by installing a wheelchair lift, removing raised flooring and redecorating. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Amadu Koker, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Kings Cross, 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 Remark Community.
