Shaid/St Peters Court charity gets a helping hand from the Screwfix Foundation

SHAID/St Peters Court, a charity based in Durham, is celebrating after being awarded £3,999.00 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.

Mr Tony Hammond project manager from Shaid comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity. Our charity SHAID / St Peters Court used the funding towards the conversion of our recently purchased care home in Sacriston into 15 flats and to purchase radiators. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Mark Dover, Store Manager of the Durham Screwfix store, 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 Shaid/St Peters Court
