Crown Paints is continuing its support community projects across the UK with a series of charitable donations.
The paint manufacturer regularly donates paint to local causes and charities through its network of more than 140 Crown Decorating Centres and social enterprise, NIMTECH.
Charlton Crown Decorating Centre recently donated 25 litres of various emulsions and oil-based wood and metal paint to South Rise Primary School’s nursery class as part of a project to improve play spaces for the pupils. Mistints were used for all of the donated paint, as part of Crown’s sustainability efforts which sees the company repurposing paint which can’t be sold by donating it.
Manchester Crown Decorating Centre was also able to support local students through a donation of mistints, by supplying the Skills Construction Centre in Manchester with 375 litres of Crown Trade Matt Vinyl emulsion, Crown Trade Silk Vinyl emulsion and Crown Trade Acrylic Eggshell paints to aid students in its painting and decorating classes.
Crown Paints also regularly donates to causes across Hull, where many of its popular products are manufactured, and has offered support to Hull’s RSPCA branch in recent years through regularly donating paint and sundries via its nearby Crown Decorating Centre. The company recently donated approximately 20 litres of Macpherson Trade Paints Gloss to the Hull RSPCA branch, as well as various sundries to enable the team to apply the paint. The animal welfare charity used the donated paint to add some colour to some of the areas around its new modular kennel rebuild, including the stores, workshop, entrance to the cattery, and the new rabbit unit.
