A charity in Bradford is celebrating after being awarded £500 from The Screwfix Foundation.

The Down Syndrome Training and Support Service will put the money towards transforming an attic into a youth club by replacing windows, mending a roof and working on the chimney.

The charity offers support and training for people who work with and look after youngsters with Down syndrome.

Wendy Uttley, of the charity, said: “We are so grateful. Once the refurbishments are complete we are hoping to employ a young adult with Down syndrome to run the facility. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising.”

The Screwfix Foundation supports projects to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities for those in need.

Projects in Bradford can apply for the Foundation’s next round of funding at screwfixfoundation. com. Pictured is Matt Hunt of Screwfix.
