B&Q has set up a new foundation, with grants of up to £5k for charities supporting people experiencing poor quality housing and homelessness, or looking for help with a project to improve homes and community spaces.
The foundation is calling for charities to apply now for the next round of funding, which will be awarded before the end of the year.
B&Q Community Reuse Scheme (Other – UK)
DIY store B&Q operates a community re-use scheme through all its branches across the UK. The scheme donates unsellable products and materials for re-use by local schools, other educational institutions and community groups, for the benefit of the local community and the environment. All items are donated on the understanding that they will be re-used or disposed of responsibly if they are not used.
Those interested will be added to a database used by stores when they have something to donate.
