Galliford Try FM (GTFM) requested our support for a community project they were delivering at an Afterschool club, called “CK’s” run by Calshot School, in Birmingham. The school had been fund raising to brighten up the external areas of their building, and wondered if GTFM and Bagnalls could donate a drop of paint. Our Community Paintbrush scheme was established to support projects such as this, so we were more than happy to collaborate with GTFM to help create a bright and welcoming environment for the afterschool club.
Between GTFM and Bagnalls, we supplied all the exterior paint and tools to undertake decorating to the white rendered walls, the tired red metal fencing, worn out benches, an old shed, and roller shutter doors. In fact there was enough paint provided so that the CK’s staff were able to paint wooden garden boxes which the children will grow vegetables and fruit in. As many crazy colours as possible were used to enhance the CK’s building, which provides vital access and opportunities for the local community, including a mother and toddler group and before and after school club.
