Staff from Christeyns brush up on their painting skills at local community centre

Staff members from Bradford-based laundry chemical manufacturer Christeyns took a day out from their busy schedules to add a new coat of paint to Buttershaw Community Centre.

Christeyns, which has its head office on Rutland Street, offers all its staff members the opportunity to take paid leave in order to volunteer at community related projects and charitable enterprises across the local area.

Seven members of staff spent a day painting the walls, doors and windowsills at Buttershaw Community Centre, which supports young people aged 12 to 18 in the Royds Ward of Bradford. The centre runs a series of focus groups and activities to help reduce anti-social behavior and build confidence.

Luke Dennison from the charity Participate Projects facilitated the day.

“It was a really great, rewarding day, helping to make the centre a lot brighter,” commented Lucy Duckworth, Human Resources & Marketing Administrator at Christeyns.

Christeyns UK is part of the Christeyns group, based in Ghent, Belgium. Its principal focus is the manufacture and supply of detergents and supporting chemicals for the commercial laundry sector across the UK in which it is the market leader.
