We would like to welcome to the Community RePaint network the Chapter 1 2nd Chance Furniture Re-Use project, in Nuneaton and Bedworth as our new paint scheme.

2nd Chance is a furniture re-use project that is a subsidiary of the Salvation Army Housing Association, who sell affordable good quality unwanted furniture and household items primarily to those on lower incomes. From today there is now also reusable, affordable paint available.

The 2nd Chance project was opened in 2006 and since then has been growing ever since. Martin Pearse, the Community RePaint Network Manager visited the scheme launch today and can be seen pictured below with Nigel Parrington, the CEO of the Salvation Army Housing Association and Councillor Keith Kondakor who is the local Green Party of England and Wales Councillor.
