The Screwfix Foundation supports Accuro Care Services in Bishop’s Stortford

Essex based charity Accuro, is celebrating after being awarded £3,500 worth of funding from The Screwfix Foundation.

Tiwa Odukoya from Accuro said: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity that supports children, young people and adults with a disability in West Essex. The funding went towards the repairs to the eroding chimney and the flat roof. Now we have a good space for us to use for holding events with our service users. So far, we have had pottery painting, Christmas Wreath making and dance workshops.”

Robert Haines, Screwfix Bishops Stortford Store Manager, said: “We’re so happy that one of our local charities has been awarded funding by The Screwfix Foundation.

“Screwfix customers are the driving force behind the Foundation, and without their generous donations, it wouldn’t be possible to support so many charities like Accuro.

“Over the past six years customers have been donating through sponsoring various staff fundraisers, in-store donation boxes and pennies online. 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 has awarded more than £4 million of much-needed funding to help a variety of local projects throughout the UK. The charity supports projects to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities for those in need.

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.

Relevant projects from across Somerset are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at
