Crown Paints are continuing to add colour to people’s lives with their charitable donations, this time with a unique 'library bus'.
The company’s Blackburn Crown Decorating Centre took on the Community Challenge set by Burnley-based window and door systems company, VEKA Group, to help the children of Whittlefield Primary School to transform an old school bus into a magical new library.
Dozens of litres of paint in nine different colours were donated by Crown Paints, which 45 volunteers used to completely transform the bus in just five weeks.
The finished design, which was decorated with characters and scenes from children’s stories, was officially unveiled by the Mayor of Burnley, Charlie Briggs, a former pupil at the school.
The bus acts as a unique library that will inspire generations of school children.
In addition to this, Crown Paints’ Carlisle Crown Decorating Centre has supported a unique Remembrance Day project in the city with the donation of paints and decorating sundries.
“Carlisle Remembers 1918” includes ‘This Day in 1918’, a unique event hosted in Carlisle Castle on Saturday 10th November to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the signing of the Armistice agreement.
The Crown Decorating Centre donated undercoat and eggshell paint in the tank’s signature dark green colour as well as brushes and roller kits.
A further donation of masonry paint was used as part of the trench reconstruction, making the trench look much more believable.
