Bedford Daycare Hospice, is celebrating after being awarded £4,000 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.
Jinny Shoosmith from Bedford Daycare Hospice comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. We are an independent charity providing individualised holistic care to patients suffering with life limiting conditions in North and Mid Bedfordshire. We offer support from the point of diagnosis through treatment and onto remission or palliative care. The funding will be used towards the cost of refurbishing the day lounge and conservatory including painting and decorating. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Jamie Goodman, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Bedord, 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 Bedford Daycare Hospice.
