THE Amelia Trust Farm has been awarded £5,000 worth of funding from The Screwfix Foundation.

The foundation is a charity which supports projects to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities for those in need.

Education manager at The Amelia Trust, Mal Jones said: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity.

“We help young people facing multiple disadvantages to get their lives back on track by involving them in meaningful activities at the Farm.

Without our support they enter adulthood without the life skills needed to cope let alone succeed and could end up unemployed, dependent on drugs or in prison.

“The funding will be used towards helping these young people with the resources they need whilst at the Farm but also creating a therapeutic environment for everyone to enjoy.

“We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.”

Barry Screwfix store manager, Samantha Knight 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.”

Relevant projects from across Glamorgan are invited to apply online for a share of the funding at
