The Screwfix Foundation supports Sebastian’s Action Trust in Bagshot
Sebastian’s Action Trust, based in Bagshot, is celebrating after being awarded £3,000 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.
Kathryn Williams from Sebastian’s Action Trust comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. Sebastian’s Action Trust supports families of seriously-ill children from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond. We provide respite breaks at our unique home, The Bluebells, a range of play and leisure activities as well as emotional, social and practical support. The funding will be used to maintain our facilities to ensure they are fit for children with weakened immunity due to their condition. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Carl Dinsmore, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Tunstall, 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 two national charity partners, Barnardo’s children’s charity and Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as supporting smaller, local registered charities like Sebastian’s Action Trust.
