Donna Louise Trust, based in Stoke on Trent, 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.

Vick Smith, Regional Fundraiser from the Donna Louise Trust comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. The Donna Louise provides respite and support for children with life limiting conditions, across the whole of Staffordshire and South Cheshire. The funding will be used to provide support and care to all of our families in a number of ways, including Art and Music Therapy. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Noreen Khan, Assistant Manager of the Screwfix store in Stoke on Trent, 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 the Donna Louise Trust.
