Volunteers get down to business painting Greenside white

On 22 November 2013, over 30 volunteers from London Business School (LBS) and CityWest Homes helped give the Greenside community hall a fresh new look.

John MacDonald, community engagement co-ordinator and Lauren Apostolou, corporate social responsibility practitioner arranged the event in conjunction with LBS.

Specialist paint supplier Integra Coatings provided both the class O paint and supervision for free on the day which will ensure that the hall meets current fire safety regulations.

Nick Hussain from LBS said "We work closely with the Lisson Green estate team and noticed that the hall could do with a paint before all the Christmas events. We are all encouraged to volunteer in the local community for one day each year and we hope this will make a difference."

The hall is going to be busy in the run up to Christmas with children’s’ parties, a pantomime, and an over 50s lunch.
