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?


list of painty type shops:

I can pick up as much as I can carry and/or do several trips. If any of them are bussable, that would be great, since I have a buscard.

thanks for he offer, Mike..

but there are folk who have cars, no?

could be a lot more efficient if we do a propper mission and drive round and pick up all the paint..

I'll make the arrangements... just need a vehicle to do it.

thanks!
