Charity gets helping hand from The Screwfix Foundation

Published: 4 July 2017 - Sue Deane

The Bridge (East Midlands), based in Loughborough has been awarded £4,700 in funding from The Screwfix Foundation, a charity which supports projects to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities for those in need.

“We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity,” said The Bridge business development manager Paul Snape. 

“This funding will be used to help with the cost of creating new storage and refurbishing existing storage facilities to support the delivery of our vital welfare services. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Screwfix Loughborough store manager Joanne Kaye commented: “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


 so it’s fantastic to see the money invested back into such a worthwhile community project.”

Launched in April 2013, The Screwfix Foundation donates 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 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 The Bridge.

Relevant projects from across Loughborough are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at
