This years Green Apple Awards in London celebrated the continuing success of the Community RePaint scheme with a Gold Award in the Community and Charity category.
Network Coordinator Martin Pearse attended the awards event which was held on the 11th November at the Houses of Parliament in London and was delighted to pick up the award on behalf of the network.
The Green Apple Awards have been running since 1994 as an annual recognition for best practice in the sustainability world.
As one of over 70 Community RePaint schemes it is fantastic achievement for all concerned and we look forward to being part of the continuing growth of the network.
Last year the Community RePaint network collected in excess of 400,000 litres of paint, redistributing nearly 250,000 litres back into community projects, charities and individuals. Here at Community Repaint Wirral this year we are on course to collect over 30,000 litres of paint and redistribute in excess of 25,000 litres of paint. Obviously we are delighted with our performance in our first full year and are continually looking at ways to grow the scheme to help more people.
Once again thanks to all those that has supported both ourselves and the network this year which has made our input so rewarding and the recognition that has been achieved possible.
