4Sight Vision Support receives help from The Screwfix Foundation

4Sight Vision Support based in Bognor Regis, is celebrating after being awarded £4,855 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.

Jessica Passmore from 4Sight Vision Support said: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these vital funds to support our charity. The funding has been used to support the conversion of an old unusable swimming pool room, into a spacious multipurpose function room (ground floor) that will not only benefit 4Sight Vision Support’s members and volunteers but will also support many other local organisations to access the Centre. 

"The space ensures more accessibility and inclusivity for social events and activities. During our opening weekend we not only hosted our AGM, but we also welcomed over 40 attendees to our first ‘VI Fun Day’ for children and young people living with sight loss, along with their families. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising to enable this change – this will continue to a positive difference for people in your community.”

Martin Ferguson, assistant store manager of the Screwfix store in Bognor Regis, 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 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 Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as supporting smaller, local registered charities like 4Sight Vision Support.
