Stafford based charity gets a helping hand from The Screwfix Foundation

Katharine House Hospice based in Stafford, is celebrating after being awarded over £1,000 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.

Kelly Day, from Katharine House Hospice comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. Katharine House Hospice provides help, care and support for people with advanced life-limiting conditions, enabling patients and those closest to them to live as fully as possible. The funding will be used to refurbish an unused bathroom in to a rehabilitation room so that we can continue to provide the best possible support to our patients. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Brett Whitehouse Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Stafford comments: “We’re really pleased that one of our local charities has been awarded funding by The Screwfix Foundation. Staff from our store have been involved with the fundraising 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, local 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 facilities in deprived areas, to decorating 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 Katharine House Hospice.

The next round of funding will be awarded in October later this year. Relevant projects from across Stafford are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at
