The Screwfix Foundation supports Hebron Trust in Norwich
  • Screwfix Foundation donates £5000 to Hebron Trust
  • Much-needed funding used for replacing and relocating water tank after leak
  • Since launch in 2013, the Screwfix Foundation has supported over 1000 charities and donated over £4m

Norwich based charity The Hebron Trust, is celebrating after being awarded £5000 worth of funding from The Screwfix Foundation.

Emma Pawsey from Hebron Trust said: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity. With annual cuts to residential rehab funding, donations from organisations like the Screwfix Foundation are vital to us being able to continue to offer the care we do to women suffering from drug and alcohol addictions.

“The funding will be used to replace and relocate our water tank that has leaked in our loft causing damage through our house. Without the Screwfix Foundation we would have to keep repairing the tank putting us at risk of further damage. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us,” she added.

Hayley Good, Screwfix Norwich – Barker Street 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 The Hebron Trust.

“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 Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as supporting smaller, local registered charities.

Relevant projects from across East Anglia are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at screwfixfoundation.com.
