Paint donation proves crowning glory for Hull community centre

Paint donation proves crowning glory for Hull community centre

A Hull community centre has received a much needed makeover thanks to a donation from one of the city’s major employers, Crown Paints. The Ings Centre, in Savoy Road, which reopened in May received a consignment of more than 50 litres of recycled paint to transform the entire building, following its four year closure.

The project is one of ten across the North of England chosen to receive donations of paint as a result of Crown’s Kick Out The Can community partnership programme.
Kick Out The Can collects unwanted paint through Crown Decorating Centres across the UK, recycles the paint and containers at its Darwen headquarters through the social enterprise Nimtech and then distributes it with the help of its partner charity Newground.

The centre’s Commercial Manager Graham White said: “The facelift has made the building as good as new and it’s now a really welcoming space to visit for the whole community. We cannot thank Crown enough for the donation.”
