By KLTV Newsdesk –
Global Materials Supplier PPG today announced that it will carry out a ‘Colourful Communities‘ project to help revitalize part of the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in Huddersfield.
The project will bring together more than 40 PPG volunteers, who will spend three days starting March 30 beautifying children’s bedrooms and indoor and outdoor areas of Russell House, the heart of the Forget Me Not hospice.
As the supplier, PPG will provide more than 450 litres of paints, and Local illustrator Carly Gledhill has created several murals that will be painted across Russell House as part of the project. PPG will also provide £40,000 in funding to support the redecoration.
The Colorful Communities program provides PPG volunteers and products along with financial contributions to bring colour and vitality to communities where the company operates around the world, such as Birstall in Kirklees, where PPG has an Architectural Coatings facility.
‘Place of Comfort’
“We’re incredibly grateful to PPG for helping us with the redecoration of Russell House,” said Alison Parker, Partnerships, Trusts & Foundations, and Major Gift Manager for Forget Me Not.
“After 10 years of constant use, our hospice is looking a little bit tired. With PPG’s help, it will once again be the place of comfort and sanctuary our children and families need and deserve.”
This project is also supported by Bell Group, the UK’s largest commercial painting, and decorating contractor.
‘Commitment to the community’
Nina Skodova, PPG’s UK communications leader, said: “We are proud to bring together our volunteers and products to demonstrate our commitment to the community in which we live and operate
“We are really looking forward to next week’s Colourful Communities project, beautifying Russell House to support the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, as well as its clients, children, and their families.”
