The Big Help Project has been a part of the Community RePaint network for 5 years, working hard to prevent paint from going to waste, and redistributing it to people in need throughout the Liverpool area.

A lot has been happening these last few months at Community RePaint Liverpool. Run by The Big Help Project, not only have they been part of the Community RePaint network for 5 years, they are also celebrating 10 years since the Big Help Project started.

The Big Help Project main goal is to assist people on to a better future. As a charity, filled with amazing volunteers and dedicated staff, they do this by running multiple projects all aimed to assist those in need. This includes a food bank, food club, baby basics and their Community RePaint Scheme.

Community RePaint Liverpool has worked hard over the last 5 years and since joining the network in 2016, Community RePaint Liverpool has redistributed 79,822 litres of paint through selling leftover paint tins and ReColour. In 2020 alone, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, they redistributed 21,828 litres of leftover paint to those in need across Liverpool. Here’s to many more years of stoping paint waste, and bringing colour to the lives of those in need.

What better way to celebrate such a big milestone than jumping from a plane at 11,000 feet? Although a terrifying idea, 2 brave staff members who run the Community RePaint scheme, Bob and Dylan, did just that to raise money and awareness for The Big Help Project.Β  The daring pair, who normally spend their day running Community RePaint Liverpool, raised an incredible Β£900 – well done!

On a normal day, the team at Community RePaint Liverpool work on multiple projects to redistribute leftover paint at an affordable price. One of those projects is providing decorating boxes for individuals and families in need. The box includes ReColour remanufactured paint, decorating tools and a helpful info sheet full of decorating tips. With a selection of 18+ different colours of ReColour remanufactured paint to choose from, the boxes have helped hundreds of families make their houses feel like home.
