Support Dogs gets a helping hand from the Screwfix Foundation

Support Dogs is celebrating after being awarded £5,000 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.

Danny Anderson from Support Dogs comments: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity. Support Dogs is a charity dedicated to increasing independence and quality of life for people with various medical conditions. We provide, train and support specialist assistance dogs to achieve this. We provide help with everyday tasks for people with physical disabilities, give advance warning of seizures for people with epilepsy and provide safety and support for children with autism and their families. The funding will be used towards the cost of installing partitions in our new premises. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”
