The Screwfix Foundation supports Fenland Area Community Enterprise Trust

Cambridgeshire-based charity Fenland Area Community Enterprise Trust is celebrating after being awarded £3,500 worth of funding from The Screwfix Foundation.

Kris Harrold from FACET said: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our organisation. FACET is a charity with a focus on providing training and day care to adults with disabilities within the Fenland area.”

“The funding will be used to install a fire and intruder alarm, heating and cooling, external decking and kitchen worktop with adjustable metal legs.

“We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a huge help to us,” he added.

Samuel Laws, Screwfix Wisbech Assistant Store Manager, said: “We’re so happy that one of our local charities has been awarded funding by The Screwfix Foundation.

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

“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 Cambridgeshire are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at screwfixfoundation.com.
