We need to make Seagulls safe for staff, volunteers and customers so we can collect, mix and sell paint, offer creative projects and refills

Onwards and upwards!

Wow!!!!! We've reached our stretch target in record time. 

We can't thank everyone enough for their generosity and out pouring of love for Seagulls. It means such a lot in these tricky times and your lovely comments have really kept us going and uplifted our spirits. 

We've begun to put plans into place for re configuring the paint store so we can welcome back staff, volunteers and eventually customers. We have a plumber booked in to install hot water and new taps and new wash basins- very exciting and we have a click and collect counter ready to install, also very exciting!

We have tested picking up paint; it is going to require a new way of working: taking out 2 vans so we can physically distance and leaving the paint to quarantine or disinfect once back at Seagulls for 72 hours. None of this is insurmountable but we are unfortunately in need of a new van. Little pink is not in the best condition, having served us well for nearly 10 years and carried over 2000 tonnes of paint her time as a working paint van is coming to an end. 

So, we are continuing to stretch our target to see if we can get  a bit more support for the work we are doing. Leeds needs us, our community needs us, the comments say as much. Thank you.

(the photo of me was taken pre lockdown and I'm being very serious :-) , the paint banks are usually as full as this throughout the summer and little pink is feeling sorry for herself.)
