What better way to celebrate life than
passing forward kindness. Brewers were honoured to be able to support this
sentiment with the donation of a £250 voucher to East Kent College in loving
memory of painter and decorator, Carl Richardson.
Carl unexpectedly lost his life in 2018
and his sister Stephanie has been fundraising ever since. Carl attended East
Kent College’s painting and decorating course before starting his career,
working for PDC Painting & Decorating Ltd whose owner Phil spoke very
highly of Carl as a decorator and a lovely human being.
Stephanie is exceptionally passionate
about fundraising, so when she approached Brewers to find a way to support
current East Kent College students, Area Development Manager, Shayne McCosh,
agreed to support her as best we could.
said: “The money raised will go to a student or students that show exceptional
skill, determination, effort and competency as selected by their tutor. The
money will be received in way of a Brewers voucher to help set them up with the
tools, equipment and so forth that they may need to get into the industry that
they have studied for.
need opportunities and they need to be recognised, I hope this may do
loved his job, he was a perfectionist, he was hard working, and it was what he
was good at. He didn’t enjoy school or academics but thrived in the painting
and decorating world. He liked working with others who also took pride in their
work. I hope there are some ready for a new term at college to whom, in Carl’s
legacy, can benefit from this fundraiser and begin a career to which they will
thrive and enjoy.”
