Dulux Decorator Centre donates £27k to Outward Bound Trust

 

– Money raised from sales of paint can openers and paint stirrers will help charity support the lives of young people

 

Dulux Decorator Centre is helping to make a difference to the lives of young people by donating £27,000 to the Outward Bound Trust. The generous figure was raised from sales of paint can openers and paint stirrers across Dulux Decorator Centre stores between August 2020 and July 2021.

 

The Outward Bound Trust is an educational charity where young, disadvantaged people can realise their full, true-colour potential and develop the attitudes, skills and behaviours they need to make positive changes in their lives.

 

Dulux Decorator Centre has supported the Outward Bound Trust for 15 years and has raised a total of £104,000 for the charity to date. Dulux Decorator Centre is continuing to raise vital funds for the Outward Bound Trust through sales of paint can openers and paint stirrers through its national network of more than 238 Dulux Decorator Centre stores.

 

The donation is the latest incentive in Dulux Decorator Centre’s ongoing commitment to support good causes that have a positive impact on people’s lives. In 2020, Dulux Decorator Centre marked 125 years of service with a pledge to donate to 125 community organisations that supported the nation during the Covid pandemic.

As the UK’s leading decorating merchant, Dulux Decorator Centre is also dedicated to building long-lasting relationships with its customers and bringing colour to the communities they work in. This includes initiatives such as its long-standing partnership with Good Guys Decorating in London. Dulux Decorator Centre has been providing free paint and accessory packs to Good Guys as part of the decorator’s ‘Give Back’ project, which provides free decorating services to families facing hardship.

 

Lucy Sharma, Head of Corporate Partnerships at the Outward Bound Trust, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to receive this generous donation from Dulux Decorator Centre, one of our long-standing partners. Young people need to be supported now more than ever before, and this contribution will ensure young people can experience real adventure in the wilderness and develop their confidence, tenacity and aspirations for the future.”

 

Guy Butterworth, Managing Director of Dulux Decorator Centre, said: “We’re committed to supporting and building lasting relationships with local communities and are proud to play our part in giving back and improving the lives of wider society.

 

“The Outward Bound Trust is a great cause that is very close to our hearts here at Dulux Decorator Centre, and one that we have been supporting for a number of years now. We hope this latest donation will help the trust in its tireless efforts to support young people going through challenging times and help them unlock their true potential.”
