Community RePaint reaches the English Riviera

09/09/2008 Return to news archive

Torbay is the latest place to set up a Community RePaint project and is being run by Anode a community interest company seeking to address the individual and corporate needs of social concern within the local community. 

 

They’ve got off to a great start by collecting around 700 litres of paint from Brewers, Johnstone’s Leyland and Crown Paints. However most of this has already been used on two fantastic redecoration projects at Torbay Opportunities Group (a pre-school for disabled children) and STEPS Charity, who make electronic switches for disabled children’s toys. The work was carried out by an amazing 263 volunteers through Anode’s ‘SmileMaker’ which is a unique service that facilitates community makeovers.
