Dulux has launched its exciting and community improving Let’s Colour Project, which offers a helping hand to groups and charities in Luton and Dunstable looking to have their local grey spaces transformed with colourful paint.

The project is open to anyone who has the drive and determination to make a difference in their community. The Let’s Colour Project is on a mission to ‘add colour’ to the lives of people across the UK and successful applicants will receive a donation of paint to help them improve their local environments and create brighter futures.

Dulux is appealing to everyone who is passionate about where they live, work or play to get involved by submitting a project in need of some help, or attention in Luton and Dunstable. Whether it be the local hall, scout hut, sports club, or school playground; those who are in need of a splash of colour, are able to nominate their project online at www.letscolour.co.uk

The Let’s Colour Project is one of several initiatives supported by the ‘Let’s Colour Fund’, which positively impacts local communities and aims to colour the lives of one million people in the UK by 2020.

With Dulux pledging to donate £1million to the fund annually, the Let’s Colour Project will be donating over 60,000 litres of paint to neighbourhood spaces across the UK, which will be supplied by the 193 Dulux Decorator Centres positioned throughout the nation.

Speaking of the scheme, Letty Edwards, UK marketing director at Dulux, said: “The Let’s Colour Project stands for colour, transformation and impacting on people’s lives. This scheme is not just about donating paint; it is also about bringing together communities and working collectively for a good cause.

“By donating paint to projects in need of help, it is our hope that people will embark on their own colourful journeys, pulling together to recruit and organise volunteers in order to complete the work, improve local environments and leave behind a positive long-term legacy.

“Nominated projects will be judged against criteria and also on the positive impact that they have to the local community. Any that are unsuccessful will be referred to the Community Repaint Scheme*, which is proudly sponsored by Dulux.”
