Get Painted

As a social enterprise we have social and environmental commitments enshrined in our constitution. Social Enterprises typically commit to create a positive environmental impact, and we do this with our reuse services, electric van, and sustainable packaging. We also create social value by helping other community organisations in Cambridgeshire with free paint.

How does it work?

Every month we offer up to 250 litres of paint to be shared between Cambridgeshire based community groups, charities or third sector organisations absolutely free of charge!

Winners will also receive a year’s membership to CCORRN which Scrapstore and discounts on paint purchases at either our March or Wisbech shops.
