Scropton Riding for the Disabled Centre gets a helping hand from The Screwfix Foundation

Scropton Riding for the Disabled Centre, based in South Derbyshire, is celebrating after being awarded £5000 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.

Glynis Dally, Trustee from Scropton RDA comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support the work we do helping the health and well-being of local disabled adults and children through activities with horses. The funding will be used towards replacing a number of aged doors and windows at the centre to help improve security and insulation. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Steve Dunston, Screwfix Foundation Trustee said: “Supporting charities such as Scropton Riding for the Disabled Centre with much-needed funding to help fix, repair, maintain and improve their facilities is vital. It’s great to see this donation go toward such an important project that benefits those in need.”
