Community RePaint Swindon were able to supply Nationwide volunteers with paint to decorate the Children’s Ward at Swindon Hospital.

Nineteen volunteers from Nationwide then spent two days on the Children’s Ward at Swindon Hospital painting the artwork. Community RePaint Swindon were approached by Nationwide who were in need of paint in a variety of colours for the circus-inspired designs they had created.

Emma from Nationwide said “The day went fantastically and the end result is just great, it really cheered the ward up!”
