Funding will be spent on replacing flooring

A parent-support charity in Gravesend has received nearly £1,000 from a local trade shop.

Waterside Parents Centre, which offers courses and advice for parents in Gravesend, helps support families with children aged 0-5.

The funding has come from the Screwfix Foundation, with support from the local branch.

Jennie Edwards from Waterside Parents Centre said: “We are very grateful to the Screwfix Foundation for donating these much needed funds to support our charity.

“We’re here to support families when they need it most”

The donation will be spent replacing flooring in the centre’s playroom and the chairs in the toast room.

Pam Rogers, trade sales manager of the Screwfix store in Gravesend said: “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.”
