Thanks to the amazing volunteers from Marks and Spencers, the Law Leisure Learning refuge in Hansworth is now modern and refreshed.

The volunteers were taking part in the Marks and Spencer’s ‘Making Every Moment Special’ programme, in partnership with Neighbourly, an online giving platform which connects charities, businesses and communities. Community RePaint Sandwell and Soho are run by Law Leisure Learning, who run the refuge.

The Law Leisure Learning home has the capacity to accommodate homeless members of the community and 14 ex-offending residents, who are referred to them from prisons. Using paint that they collect at their Community RePaint scheme, the team spent the day painting the dining hall, living area and the hallways. We think the results are amazing, all thanks to the great volunteers that took part in the day.

All paint that was used would otherwise have been wasted, if you need paint, visit Community RePaint Sandwell and Soho.
