Treetops Hospice Care receives generous donation from the Screwfix Foundation

Treetops Hospice Care, based in Derbyshire, is celebrating after being awarded £2,000 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.

Victoria Summer from Treetops Hospice Care comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. Treetops provides nursing care and emotional support for adults with life-limiting conditions, their families and carers. Last year we supported over 1,700 people with confidential support and information, Day Care, Hospice at Home support and counselling and therapeutic services. The funding will be used to provide a new carpet for our day care area, We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Aimee Seymour, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Derbyshire, 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 Treetops Hospice Care.
