The Screwfix Foundation supports St Teresa’s Hospice in Darlington
St Teresa’s Hospice, based in County Durham, is celebrating after being awarded £730 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.
John Paul Stabler from St Teresa’s Hospice comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity. We provide free care, counselling and support to individuals and families in the South Durham and North Yorkshire area. We do this through a variety of services such as our community hospice, our day hospice, in-patient care and family support and bereavement service. The funding will be used towards general maintenance, including increasing our storage space. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Andy Watson, Manager of the Screwfix store in Darlington, 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 St Teresa’s Hospice.
