Barry support group given a fresh lick of paint

A BARRY recovery centre has unveiled a brand new look thanks to a generous paint donation from the Dulux ‘Let’s Colour’ project.
Recovery Cymru, on Holton Road, was established earlier this year and currently 150 members use the self-help and recovery services to help combat drug and alcohol-related issues.
The interior of the building had become drab and uninviting and staff members were keen to make it a more welcoming place for members to improve their lives, socialise and volunteer.
A dedicated team of seven volunteers rolled up their sleeves to liven up the walls with the organisation’s colours of purple and warm shades of aubergine.
The paint was kindly donated by Dulux Decorator Centres in Cardiff as part of the Let’s Colour mission to add colour to people’s lives, after founder and director of the centre Sarah Louise Vaile nominated the project online.
“We are extremely grateful to Dulux Decorator Centres for the generous paint donation,” said Sarah.
“We work with a lot of vulnerable adults; some of whom have challenging personal lives and non-secure housing. The recovery centre will now be a place that is calming and comfortable and it will be a safe space for those seeking support to improve their lives and make their future brighter.”
Neil Brunton, store manager of Dulux Decorator Centres on Colchester Avenue, said: “Helping such a great project to impact so many lives in the local community was an absolute pleasure. The transformation has really brought Recovery Cymru to life and we hope it will make a big difference to local people.”
