We can get free paint, and we should. at the moment we are low on all kinds of paint and need more.
the way to get it is to phone up the company in advance and ask them nicely nicely .. tell them you are calling from an arts charity and you will put any unwanted paint to good use.
we need to organise a car to go and pick up some paint before Sun 30th Nov... can you help?
