MANCHESTER, UK – HMG Paints Ltd. brought home two BCF Awards, including the inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility Award, and the Coatings Training Institute Student of the Year award for HMG's Laboratory Technician, Darren James.

The BCF award wins come after HMG Paints' hat-trick win at the Family Business of the Year Awards back in June where HMG was crowned overall Supreme Family Business of the Year as well as Family Business of the Year in Manufacturing and the North and Northern Ireland.

The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award is given to the company that has demonstrated an outstanding and successful charity or CSR campaign across any aspect of social responsibility, and is awarded to the coatings company that has demonstrated the most beneficial impact to the public. HMG created a unique all-inclusive program in order to create maximum benefit for both the recipient charity, Macmillan Cancer Support, HMG staff and the community of Greater Manchester.

As well as successful staff team building and fundraising activities, HMG, in collaboration with Macmillan in Greater Manchester, released an exclusive decorative paints range, the Manchester Colour Collection, in which part of the profit went directly to Macmillan. Lastly, as part of the BCF Paintcare initiative HMG utilized unused and specially made paints for Macmillan Solutions in Greater Manchester, which provides practical, emotional and financial support for people affected by cancer, in volunteer-led painting projects to help create comfort in their homes. HMG is actively promoting how businesses can utilize their core business activities to make a positive impact in their community, through HMG Paints' Paint the Town Green campaign.
