Central Hall Westminster’s events team rolled up their sleeves and got out their paintbrushes at their annual charity day to give Notting Hill Methodist Church* a fresh new look.
The 18-strong team from Central Hall gave up their time to spruce up the church in Lancaster Road after hearing that its members had been so busy helping victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster that they no longer had the funds or time for a much-needed paint refresh.
Staff from the central London conferencing and events venue, swapped their usual business attire for painting overalls to sand down and repaint one of the church’s stairwells. They also painted corridor areas accessing the kitchen, offices and activity rooms and glossed doors, door frames and skirting boards.
Paul Southern, Managing Director of Central Hall Westminster, comments: “I had been speaking with members of Notting Hill Methodist Church about their tireless work in providing shelter and support to victims of the Grenfell Tower fire and asked if we could help in any way. Areas of the church building were in need of a freshen up and this seemed an incredibly worthy cause for our annual charity day. All our staff tackled the work with enthusiasm and commitment, producing a finished result to be proud of.”
Kevin French, Property and Facilities Manager at Notting Hill Methodist Church, adds: “A massive thanks to the splendid team at Central Hall. They’ve left us with a lovely bright corridor and stairway. We certainly enjoyed having them here for the day.”
In the the coming weeks, members of the Central Hall Westminster maintenance team plan to carry out some additional jobs needed by the church.
