The community centre, which re-opened in May, received a consignment of over 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 to receive donations of paint as a result of Crown’s ‘Kick Out the Can’ community partnership programme.
‘Kick Out the Can’ recycles unused paints and containers through Crown Decorating Centres across the UK at its Darwen headquarters through Nimtech, and then distributes it with the help of its charity partner, Newground.
After four years of standing empty, Autism Plus – who run the Ings Centre in Hull – applied for the help of Crown Paints in renovating the centre.
Over the Easter break, all Crown Decorating centres ran the Kick Out the Can’ initiative, encouraging customers to clear out garages, sheds and cupboards and return unwanted paint to the network of more than 130 UK stores.
It was the most successful year ever for the initiative, with over 8,600 containers of unwanted paint donated and recycled.
