A COLLEGE for young people with additional support needs has been awarded a funding boost by DIY giant Screwfix.

Cantraybridge College, based at Croy, has been awarded £5000 by the firm’s charity foundation.

The Screwfix Foundation supports projects to repair and maintain facilities and properties for those in need.

The money will be used to create a dehumidifying room at the college, allowing residential students to dry their clothes without using expensive tumble driers.

College bosses have said it will teach studetns how to save money, live independently and be more environmentally aware.

Chief executive Jenny Liddell said: “We are very grateful to The Screwfix Foundation for donating these much-needed funds to support our charity.

“Our mission is to support the young people to fulfil their life potential, and this includes assisting them to live as independently as possible.”

Chris Maclean, manager of Screwfix’s Inverness store, 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.”
