Woking Community Furniture Project, based in Woking, is celebrating after being awarded £5000 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.
Keith Rose from Woking Community Furniture comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. Woking Community Furniture helps those on very low incomes, providing much needed furniture and electrical items. The funding will be used towards providing double glazing for our very old building, making it secure and more energy efficient. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Stephen Clack Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Woking, 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 Woking Community Furniture Project.
Relevant projects from across Woking are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at screwfixfoundation.com.
