London’s largest HIV charity has unveiled a colourful new look for its headquarters thanks to a generous paint donation.
Positive East in Mile End Road, Stepney Green, was in desperate need of a refresh as it was last decorated seven years ago, but funds weren’t stretching that far.
So they applied for a paint donation from Dulux’s community regeneration mission Let’s Colour which aims to add a bit of vibrancy to people’s lives.
Armed with paint pots of Lemon Punch, Moroccan Flame and Luscious Lime, along with some softer shades, a team of three set to work revamping the set of seven small rooms where clients go to have counselling or advice.
Michelle De-Fontaine, facilities co-ordinator, said: “We chose to go with a feature wall in each of the rooms that were redecorated, which has helped to make the area more appealing and comfortable for our users.

“It is amazing how colour can impact people’s lives and we believe the ones we have chosen will have a positive effect on those who use our services.”
