What are you most proud of with the Community RePaint project?
Each year our schemes redistribute over 300,000 litres of leftover paint into their communities. What we are most proud of is seeing how this paint is used to transform homes, community buildings and public spaces. From decorating children’s bedrooms to refreshing village halls to brightening walls with murals, the paint truly has a transformative effect which is so inspiring to see.
Who are the main types of people who use your services?
Our schemes would be nothing without the volunteers who help collect, sort and sell the paint. They make the schemes what they are and are the friendly faces that customers see. Then a wide range of people and organisations visit our schemes, all looking for an affordable or an environmentally friendly option.
We get a lot of individuals, and also community organisations such as sports halls, community centres, scout groups, religious buildings, youth clubs and theatre groups. The launch of our remanufactured paint ReColour at two of our larger schemes means we are now able to supply much larger quantities of paint across the UK, increasing the interest from those with larger buildings, such as schools.
