Papworth Trust Essex supports disabled and older people, their families and carers. They sourced paint from Community RePaint Thurrock, run by Second Generation, in order to complete a project allowing the clients and volunteers at their service to upcycle old tyres into painted garden ornaments, gaining funds for the charity.

Lyn Roe from Papworth Trust Essex said ‘As you can appreciate paint is very expensive to obtain and we were delighted to find that we can get what we need at Second Generation Essex either donated or for a fraction of the cost. On behalf of the company and ourselves please would you thank the benefactors who donate this paint to you.’
