Bagnalls Wins Johnstone’s Paint Community Award
Bagnalls has been named as this year’s Johnstone’s Community Award winner.
The company won the prestigious award for its outstanding Community Paintbrush Scheme which supports local projects, worthy causes and charitable events. The Community Award winner was announced at Johnstone’s Painter of the Year ceremony at the Oulton Hall Hotel, in Leeds.
Bagnalls were one of four companies that had worthy projects considered for the award. Joanne Gualda, Group Marketing Director of Bagnalls commented on their community award win: “Community projects are at the heart of our business and we’ve been offering our services to local projects since we were established in 1875.
“This award is real recognition of the success of our Community Paintbrush scheme and the value it brings to communities. Since it was established in 2012, we’ve carried out over 50 projects across the country, including supporting the main contractor, Carillion building the Royal Liverpool Hospital.”
The diversity of Community Paintbrush projects ranges from donating a few pots of paint to redecorate bicycles in time for the Tour De Yorkshire and providing Information Technology resources for use by a charity supporting the needs of asylum seekers, through to redecorating internal and external areas of Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice in Liverpool and making a donation for tree planting in Stanley Park, as well as supplying two willing operatives “with spades”, to plant them.
To continue its community work, Bagnalls will now partner with Johnstone’s Trade Paints to carry out the winner of their Community Makeover project, namely, Kentish Town City Farm.
The farm, which helps people connect with animals and nature in the centre of the city, has been awarded a £10,000 paint decoration from Johnstone’s Trade.
