Rock Foundation UK gets a helping hand from the Screwfix Foundation

Rock Foundation UK, based in Grimsby, is celebrating after being awarded £4,755 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.

Pamela Hodge, Founder of the Rock Foundation comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity. We provide supported activities for adults with learning disabilities to build independence, employment, and social skills to achieve their full potential and enjoy a better quality of life. The funding from Screwfix Foundation allowed us to modernise our lighting system with new LED installations. In doing this we have improved the feel of our building, cut our carbon footprint and reduced our bills, meaning we can spend more on delivering our services. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Helen Sanderson, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Grimsby, 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 Rock Foundation UK.

Relevant projects from across Grimsby are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at
