Paint appeal

A COMMUNITY paint scheme is calling on Northumberland residents to pass on their decorating left-overs.

Community Re-paint collects donations of paint to re-distribute to charities, community groups and individuals in need.

However, following the last two hard winters, far less paint has been reusable due to ice crystals forming and causing it to separate, with paint stored in sheds and garages at particularly high risk.

Now the charity is seeking donations of left-over paint before the winter sets in to try to avoid the problem.
