We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity. The money will be used to help fund the cost of reconfiguring and fitting out the upper floor in Jacksplace to create a new Long Term Ventilation Unit to support newly ventilated children. We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the fundraising – it’s been a great help to us.
