Supporting local charities with paint donations is just one of the core objectives of the Bagnalls’ Community Paintbrush Scheme.
Christian, our North East Management Trainee, took it upon himself to find a local charity that we could help.
County Durham Furniture Help Scheme (CDFHS) is a charity that was set up not only to help disadvantaged and low-income families, but also any member of the public who is in need of furniture or household items.
We donated over 150 gallons of paint that will be used to help re-decorate the CDFHS premises as well as homes and buildings throughout the local community.
A volunteer from the charity said:
“It’s fantastic that local businesses, such as Bagnalls, are able to donate such a large amount of paint. We have so many people coming to us who want to brighten up their homes and for us to be able to help them do this is fantastic. Thank you”.
Community Paintbrush has helped over 150 projects since its introduction in 2012. The projects have varied from donations of paint through to raffle prizes and planting trees.
We hope these acts of generosity have helped in some small way to support the local communities in which we live and work.
