Trades4Care have used ReColour remanufactured paint to complete another invaluable community project in the North East of England.

Trades4Care CIC supports young people in need of work experience within the construction sector, with skills and mentoring opportunities, while providing community hubs, education buildings and care facilities with an affordable decorating service – on this occasion working to redecorate the Methodist Church hall in Barnard Castle.

This church hall is a vital hub within the local town with lots of different activities taking place in the hall throughout each week. This includes a foodbank, Parkinson’s exercise classes, charity coffee mornings, a warm space, a polling station, as well as puppy and dog training.

With a team of young adults, keen to develop their decorating skills, Trades4Care jumped to action to redecorate this community space, repairing the ceiling and woodchip walling and repainting the interior of the hall – which had not seen a lick of paint in 25 years!

For the project, Trades4Care purchased 200 litres of emulsion paint from the ReColour range of remanufactured paint, with paint and delivery totalling £345 – a massive saving in comparison with the £700 they had been quoted for if they had bought from trade. The order was processed by our remanufacture centre run by Community RePaint Wirral. Once processed and packaged, the paint order was delivered directly to the door of the Methodist Church.

ReColour remanufactured paint is bulk produced from leftover paint that is filtered, treated and blended to produce a high-quality range of emulsion, masonry and chalk paint, available in over 20 colours. ReColour remanufactured paint is perfect for projects requiring more than 60 litres of paint and prices start from £1.20 per litre.

Over the course of eight days, the once previously coral pink interior of the hall was transformed into a modern, bright and airy space, well suited to the diverse range of activities that will continue to take place in this bustling community hub.
