Funding boost from B&Q Foundation

Friday July 15, 2022

We have received a grant from the B&Q Foundation, in partnership with charity giving platform Neighbourly. The £5000 grant will allow us to continue our refurbishment programme at More’s Meadow.

Chair of Trustees, Sarah Rann, said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded a grant from the B&Q Foundation. This will enable us to further support our More’s Meadow residents by upgrading our existing properties. We would like to thank everyone at the Foundation for their support, it means so much to us.”

Paul Crisp, Trustee of the B&Q Foundation, said: “At the B&Q Foundation, we believe everyone needs a place to feel at home. So we’re putting our efforts behind local charities who share our vision – helping to create better, safer places for the people in our communities who need them most.

“The Parochial Charities perfectly embodies these values and it gives us all at the Foundation great pleasure to support them.”

The B&Q Foundation was established in 2020 to support UK charities with a combination of grants, volunteering time and home improvement resources. So far it has supported over 250 charities with grants totalling more than £1.3million.
