Stirling Carers Centre receives generous donation from the Screwfix Foundation
Stirling Carers Centre, based in Stirling, 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.
Kathryn Cooper from Stirling Carers Centre comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. The charity helps unpaid carers with emotional support, carers assessments, training, advocacy, signposting and benefits advice. We also provide a range of activities and groups to offer respite from their caring duties. The funding will be put towards refurbishing our new premises. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Jonathan Noblett, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Stirling, 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 Stirling Carers Centre.
