For over 25 years, we’ve be proud to sponsor Community Repaint. The charity painting project collects leftover paint and redistributes it, enabling low-income households in communities across the UK to decorate their homes. It also provides work experience, giving people a route back into the workplace.
Since we launched the Let’s Colour initiative in 2009, we’ve carried out over 100 projects, using the power of paint to improve public spaces, uplift communities, and transform lives. Here are some of our community painting project’s biggest success stories.
Outward Bound Trust
The Outward Bound Trust is charity that helps young, disadvantaged people realise their full potential, by developing the right attitudes. We’ve supported the team for 15 years, raising over £104,000 in charity sponsorship to date, as part of our commitment to back causes that have a positive impact on people’s lives.
Volunteer It Yourself (VIY)
Volunteer It Yourself is a charity that challenges young people to help repair and refurbish youth facilities in communities across the country – all while learning valuable trade skills. Participating in VIY is one way to help young people from becoming disengaged or excluded from mainstream education. We’re proud to be able to donate accessories in support of this initiative.
So far in 2022*:
- 50+ community places transformed

CRASH is a charity that uses the expertise and products of UK construction companies, to transform hostels and day centres for homeless people in local communities, as well as hospices for children and adults who need end of life care We’re proud to provide paint and decorating services to this valuable charity painting project.

Rainy Day Trust
The Rainy Day Trust (RDT) is a charity that provides free, confidential advice on mental health and financial assistance for people in the home improvement industry and their families. Decorating can be a lonely profession and running a business or working as a sole trader can come with many pressures. We’re proud to partner with the RDT, so you get access to support if you need it.
