LONDON – Macmillan Manchester has entered a new partnership with the UK’s largest independent paint manufacturer, HMG Paints Ltd, in a new venture built on the companies’ shared ethos.
In 2016, Macmillan Manchester worked alongside HMG’s team of experienced color specialists to produce a taste of Manchester through a new decorative paints color collection. Proceeds from the Manchester-inspired color range will help fund the work of the Macmillan team across Greater Manchester; the partnership will also see HMG donate paint to the Macmillan Solutions service.
The exclusive range utilizes HMG’s color knowledge, along with current trends and popular culture themes, to bring together a range of decorative coatings that reflect their Manchester-themed names and are of the highest standards in color and quality.
“We are so excited to be working in partnership with HMG Paints on a unique campaign to raise vital funds and awareness of our local services and to help ensure that no one faces cancer alone in Greater Manchester,” said Mandy West, Corporate Fundraising Manager. “When you have cancer, you don’t just worry about what will happen to your body, you worry about what will happen to your life. At Macmillan, we know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything, and we’re here to support you through. HMG Paints’ commitment to supporting Macmillan Cancer Support means that we will be able to reach even more people with the support that they need.”
The new color collection, which can be viewed online at www.hmgpaint.com/products/macmillan, will be available from the HMG Paints Shop on Collyhurst Road in Manchester as well as via its nationwide distributor network. “We’re delighted to be creating this partnership with Macmillan Manchester and to support the great work they do across Greater Manchester,” said John Falder, HMG Paints Managing Director.
“Macmillan Solutions are absolutely delighted to be able to work with HMG Paints. Their very generous paint donation means that our volunteers will soon be hard at work in the local community completing decorating jobs for people affected by cancer, who can't do this themselves. These small things make a big difference in improving people’s quality of life,” said Jacqui Naraynsingh, Macmillan Solutions Manchester Development Manager.
The Manchester Macmillan Solutions team has trained volunteers who can provide support services in people’s own homes. Volunteers can be called upon for help with a wide variety of tasks including companionship, telephone support, gardening, shopping, transport to and from appointments, and help around the house.
