Whilst undertaking some redecoration works to the external of a Sue Ryder shop in Norfolk this amazing piece of original signage was discovered by our painters. The sign had been hidden for many years by successive Sue Ryder shop signs. During the renovation works, the sign, which was clearly hand-painted by a skilled signwriter many years ago, was revealed. It vividly demonstrates the true crafts of the painting trade with defined perspective on each letter. The well preserved sign is now on display at our Painting Academy in Doncaster, demonstrating to new apprentices how painting skills were applied many years ago.
The redecoration works are part of a planned maintenance programme at Sue Ryder shops, with their amazing new look now being revealed across the country.
