Cambridgeshire RePaint Nominated for Green Award

We are very pleased to announce that CCCORRN's Cambridgeshire Community RePaint has been nominated in the Green category for the Fenland Enterprise Business Awards 2012.

Having grown considerably and gone on leaps and bounds with the project in 2012, it is a great honour to be considered for the award alongside HOPE Social Enterprises, CUB - Commercial Utility Brokers and Foster Property Maintenance.

This award is designed to recognise significant achievement in protecting or improving the environment, major contribution to local communities without the expectation of direct commercial benefit, or both.


The RePaint project has been a true labour of love for all our staff and especially our volunteers; without whose help we would have struggled to take the project forward to the stage we are at today. Since the project launched in January 2011 we have collected over 70,000 tins of paint acquainting to almost 130,000 litres of paint removed from the waste stream. Any paint which cannot be redistributed is disposed of through environmentally friendly processes, with emulsion being broken down into fertiliser and compost.

The winners will be announced at the Fenland Enterprise Business Awards 2012 at March Braza Club, on October 5th 2012. We wish everyone the very best of luck and look forward to seeing you there!

A big thank you to everyone who has supported us throughout the year!
