Some of the team visited Shop Zer0 last week and had the chance to chat with the volunteers running the shop. Anyone can shop there, each customer is limited to 10 items/units and are asked to pay a fair donation for what they take. It’s well worth a visit!Can you believe that almost 360,000 tonnes of milk is wasted annually in the UK alone?
Over the next couple of days we will be rescuing 400 pints of fresh milk. So please come with your friends and family to support us and save this nutritious drink from going to waste. Shop with us first and help make Northampton a #Zer0FoodWasteCounty

Our thanks go to Dulux Decorator Centre Northampton Saddleback Road who last week hosted some of our families on a decorating training course.

The paint specialists, who recently opened a new store in the Brackmills area, donated £500 worth of vouchers to us in February, these have since been distributed to help 8 local families to help decorate childrens’ bedrooms.

The store, managed by Daryl Wilder, welcomed our families for a 4 hour course hosted on site at the Dulux Decorator Centre Northampton Saddleback Road.

The training course, which was led by Chris Wingrove, Skills Development Consultant from Dulux Academy, covered a range of skills including room preparation, decorating tools, application including painting with rollers and brushes and colour theory in which attendants were given advice on which colours work best on different surfaces.

Thank you so much, everyone absolutely loved it and went away enthusiastic to put what they had learnt in to practice. Great Work Dulux
