RASASC, Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre, based in Guildford Surrey, 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.

Caroline Holton from RASASC comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. RASASC aim is to support all male and female survivors of rape and sexual abuse in Surrey and the surrounding areas. The funding will be used towards decorating and improving the centre, including updating the kitchen and toilet facilities, counselling rooms and the office space. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Andy Perry Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Guildford, 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 RASASC
