The Norfolk Hospice, based in Norfolk, is celebrating after being awarded £1,100 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.
Sue Lane from The Norfolk Hospice comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House has been providing care, comfort and compassion to those in the West and North Norfolk communities nearing the end of their lives, and to their families and friends, since 1984. The charity has moved into its new residential hospice facility in Hillington and has recently opened its new inpatient facility. The funding has been used to provide a lovely quiet staffroom at the hospice where staff members can take a few moments to relax, away from the busy day to day work of the hospice. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Jon Sims, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Norfolk 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 Norfolk Hospice.
