The funding will be used to fit out of the Hub, this will include supplying and fixing plaster board ceilings and walls, finishing skim coat to second floor and supplying and installing ceiling light boxes. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
Tony Jackson, Store Manager of the Screwfix store in Luton, 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.
