Blackpool Carers, a charity based in Blackpool, is celebrating after being awarded £4,998 from The Screwfix Foundation, a charity which supports projects to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities for those in need.

Faye Atherton, head of services at Blackpool Carers said: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity.

“The funding will be used towards tools and a storage facility in our wonderful gardens so that our dedicated volunteers and gardening groups can take care of the many plants, flowers and trees that are enjoyed by our carers and also maintain our fabulous building.”

Simon Mason, store manager of the Blackpool, Mowbray Drive Screwfix store, said:“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.”
