St Wilfrid’s Centre Receives Generous Donation From The Screwfix Foundation
St Wilfrid’s Centre, based in Sheffield, 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.
Dominic Maloney from St Wilfrid’s Centre comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. St Wilfrid’s is a day centre open to all homeless, vulnerable and socially excluded adults aged between 18 and 65 years old. We have a skilled staff team that offer basic Welfare services as well as Personal Development activities to promote wellbeing and independence. The funding will be used towards the cost of installing a new air filtration system for our workshop. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Joff Selwood, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Sheffield – Queens Road, 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 St Wilfrid’s Centre.
