The Screwfix Foundation supports Seashell Trust in Cheshire

Cheshire based charity Seashell Trust is celebrating after being awarded £2,500 worth of funding from The Screwfix Foundation.

 

Dominic Tinner, Head of Fundraising for Seashell Trust, said: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity.

 

“The funding has been used to improve our garden to benefit the users. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us” he added.

 

Stephen Brady, Cheadle – Stanley Green 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 Seashell 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 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 Cheshire are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at screwfixfoundation.com.
