When you’re next stocking up on supplies for your toolbox at Screwfix.com, keep an eye out for the option to round up your purchase to the nearest pound and donate the extra pennies to help fund building and repair projects for those in need around the UK.
Screwfix is the UK’s leading multi-channel supplier of thousands of high quality screws, fixings, hand tools, power tools, plumbing and electrical supplies, bathrooms and kitchens. Combining trade prices and a massive range of leading brand name items, the Screwfix catalogue has over 18,000 products available for next day or same day collection at its 220 Trade Counters nationwide.
After a year of supporting Everyman, the testicular and prostate cancer charity, Screwfix customers now have the option to round up and donate to The Screwfix Foundation. Funds from the Foundation will help support projects that fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and community facilities for those in need across the UK. In 2013, the two national charities to benefit from these donations will be Barnardo’s and Macmillan Cancer Support, along with a number of local charities too. Barnado’s has pledged to use the donations to maintain its local centres which support sick children and their families, whilst Macmillan will put the funds towards its grants scheme, enabling people with cancer to adapt their homes to make their lives easier.
Through Pennies, Screwfix customers are able to donate at the touch of a button. As Screwfix is all about convenience for busy tradesmen, it’s a perfect addition to the charitable efforts already in existence.
