CONTINUING OUR SUPPORT OF LOCAL COMMUNITY PROJECTS
We’re delighted to have continued our efforts to add colour to people’s lives during these unprecedented times, through a series of paint donations to community projects across the UK.
Our Charlton Crown Decorating Centre recently donated 25 litres of various emulsions and oil-based wood and metal paint to South Rise Primary School’s nursery class as part of a project to improve play spaces for the pupils. Mistints were used for all of the donated paint, as part of our sustainability ethos which sees us repurposing paint which can’t be sold by donating it to deserving community projects to create a positive impact.
Manchester Crown Decorating Centre was also able to support local students through a donation of mistints, by supplying the Skills Construction Centre in Manchester with 375 litres of Crown Trade Matt Vinyl emulsion, Crown Trade Silk Vinyl emulsion and Crown Trade Acrylic Eggshell paints to aid students in its painting and decorating classes. As a business, we’re passionate about supporting young painters and decorators which is why we regularly invest in them as the future of the industry.
We also regularly donate to causes across Hull, where many of our popular products are manufactured, and we have offered support to Hull’s RSPCA branch in recent years through regularly donating paint and sundries via our nearby Crown Decorating Centre in Hull. Recently, we donated approximately 20 litres of Macpherson Trade Paints Gloss to the Hull RSPCA branch, as well as various sundries to enable the team to apply the paint. The animal welfare charity used the donated paint to add colour to some of the areas around its new modular kennel rebuild, including the stores, workshop, entrance to the cattery, and the new rabbit unit.
As a company we pride ourselves on supporting worthy causes which benefit the communities in which we work, so we’re delighted to have played our part in these projects, particularly under such difficult circumstances where many charities and community organisations are relying on extra support now more than ever.
