Community projects in Hartlepool are being given the chance to win a redecoration makeover worth up to £10,000.

 The offer comes as paint manufacturer Johnstone’s Trade launches its Community Spirit campaign which is open to towns where the football team plays in the Football league trophy.

 Charities and community groups have until Friday, December 11, to let Johnstone’s Trade know why their project is deserving of a redecoration.

 Any charity or community project in Hartlepool is welcome to apply.

The campaign is run in conjunction with the Football League Trophy, which is being sponsored by Johnstone’s Paint for the tenth consecutive season.

This year’s competition will see the general public invited to vote for one of four shortlisted finalists to win the prize.

 Richard Mazurkiewicz, marketing manager for Johnstone’s Trade, said: “After the success of last year’s Johnstone’s Trade Community Spirit campaign, we are delighted to be offering this fantastic opportunity for charities and community groups in Hartlepool.

 “There is no project too small - whether it be a rundown scout hut, a school in need of a makeover or a community centre requiring a lick of paint. The only proviso is that the facility or group must provide a community benefit.

 “Johnstone’s Trade has always maintained a strong commitment to working closely with local communities and this exciting campaign allows us to focus on that.”
