The Screwfix Foundation supports Noah’s Place in Devon

Noah’s Place, based in Devon, is celebrating after being awarded £2712 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.

Keith Holland from Noah’s Place comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity.

Noah’s Place supports adults with special support needs, our aim at Noah’s Place is to offer a way for our service users to gain confidence, provide meaningful activities, and acquire new skills that could lead to employment.

The funding was used to transform our garage into a workshop for our adults with special support needs to do crafts and woodwork. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Andy Shaw, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Bude, 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 Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as supporting smaller, local registered charities like Noah’s Place.
