Local charities could benefit from new Screwfix store in Catterick Garrison

Screwfix has opened a new store on the Walkerville Industrial Estate in Colburn, bringing potential DIY help to local charities. 

The store officially opened its doors at the end of November.

Screwfix’s Catterick Garrison store manager, Wayne Parker, said: “We chose to open a new store in Catterick Garrison to better meet the needs of the local tradespeople.

This story continues after the adverts:

“Many of our new customers previously shopped with Screwfix at our Darlington and Ripon stores, so we’re delighted to bring Screwfix even closer to them for greater convenience.

“Our celebration period, which ran from Thursday 30th November and throughout the weekend until Sunday 3rd December, attracted hundreds of customers.

“We have received fantastic support from the local homes or community facilities and are looking forward to welcoming and helping more tradespeople and serious DIYers over the coming months.”

The Screwfix Foundation supports local charities and community projects by providing donations to fix, repair or maintain local homes or community facilities

Screwfix staff get directly involved in helping community projects and host charity fundraising events within the stores.
