Our scheme in Wythenshawe was lucky enough to be joined by Hydrock Consultancy this month to get painting!

Dr Brian McConnell, CEO of Hydrock Consultancy, and his team of 20 superhero volunteers from Bristol drove up to the Tree of Life Centre in Wythenshawe to transform the charity’s previously tired-looking display rooms.

The volunteers worked tirelessly to decorate the rooms, reusing leftover paint that the centre had in stock from being part of the Community RePaint scheme.

The Tree of Life Centre aims to build sustainable and resilient families for now, for the future. They run a second-hand furniture shop, which they are renowned for, providing an opportunity for those in the local deprived community to be able to afford good quality furniture.

They are hosts of our Community RePaint scheme. They collect paint locally from traders, retailers and manufacturers. Paint is available for individuals and groups to purchase for £1-2 per litre.

Here are a few words from the Tree of Life Centre:

“It comes as no surprise that their company is renowned for being one of the best companies to work for.

A very big thank you for supporting us as we work to minimise the impact on landfill and supporting local families. Your support will improve our offer to our community, improving wellbeing and making sure families do not go without life’s basic essentials.

A special thanks to Richard from the Hale office, for his enthusiasm and project management to ensure everything ran so smoothly.”
