BIRSTALL-BASED PPG Architectural Coatings made a bright start to October by sponsoring two community projects close to its headquarters.
The paint firm backed voluntary group Birstall in Bloom and helped erect a sign at Birstall Smithies crossroads.
The ‘Welcome to Birstall’ sign, situated just a stone’s throw from the PPG site, features both the PPG and Birstall in Bloom logos.
Staff members from PPG’s HQ will also be giving up their time to assist with the building of a raised bed allotment at Batley Bulldogs’ Fox’s Biscuits Stadium, for use by a local Mencap group.
The architectural coatings manufacturer has gained reputation for pitching in on local community projects as part of its community engagement scheme, which encourages employees to volunteer at events.
Birstall in Bloom organiser Joanna Cooney said: “We are very grateful for PPG’s contribution to our group’s latest project.
“Birstall in Bloom’s aim is to keep our village looking beautiful and, by erecting the sign, we hope that we instil a sense of pride within the local community.
“We can’t thank PPG enough!”
