CHAS, Scotland’s only provider of hospice care for children, is celebrating after being awarded £5,000 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 Buchanan, Trust Fundraising Manager from CHAS comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. CHAS offers a full family support service for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions. The funding enabled us to purchase and install a height adjustable bath. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Dave Edwards, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Dumbarton, comments: “We’re really pleased that such a deserving charity 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 registered charities like CHAS
