Johnstone’s Trade has played its part in adding a splash of colour to the homes of at risk young people as part of business in the Community’s Give & Gain Day.
The leading paint manufacturer joined forces with integrated support services company Carillion to undertake an intensive three-day makeover of homes at Barnardo’s Bay6 Project in South Ribble, Lancashire.
Bay6 is a supported accommodation project for young single 16-25 year olds who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. The project consists of two buildings; Bay6, which is a six-bed block with communal facilities, and Haddon Lodge, which sits opposite Bay6 and consists of five self-contained one bedroom flats.
Johnstone’s has worked with Carillion on a number of large-scale construction and Corporate Social Responsibility projects in recent years and didn’t hesitate to donate more than 150 litres of paint from its high performance portfolio to revive the Bay6 Project accommodation.
Johnstone’s Covaplus Vinyl Matt, Acrylic Eggshell and Jonmat Premium Contract Matt were supplied in a variety of pastel colours, while brushes, rollers and dust sheets from Johnstone’s sister brand Fat Hog were also donated.
More than 50 Carillion employees armed themselves with paint brushes over the three-day makeover to ensure the two accommodation blocks are now looking fresher than ever.
Jane Braybrook, Carillion’s community regeneration manager in the north of England, said: “Corporate Social Responsibility is an integral component of Carillion’s business strategy and it’s clear that Johnstone’s values it equally as highly. When approached about the project, they wasted little time in ensuring they played a pivotal role in its success by specifying and supplying a very generous quantity of paint.”
At the beginning of this year, Carillion started a partnership with Barnardo’s and is supporting the charity through sponsorship, fundraising events, volunteering, mentoring and skills training.
