Routeways gets a helping hand from the Screwfix Foundation

Routeways based in Plymouth, is celebrating after being awarded £2800 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.

Rose from Routeways comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity. Routeways supports families that are socially excluded. The funding was used to create sheds, shelving and purchase electrical and plumbing sundries, greatly improving the facilities at our Devonport Park Activity Centre. It means we are able to work with more families and support many more children with special needs. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Martin Bowen, Area Manager, 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 Routeways.
