Supporting VIVID With Product For New Community Space

February 20th, 2024

Justin from Brewers Portsmouth (Farlington) donated a series of mis-tinted paints and sundries to help VIVID, a leading provider of affordable homes and support services in the south of England.

VIVID’s current project:

VIVID has been supporting the local Community Kettle Intergenerational Hub – that has fantastic potential for creating a valuable space for the community.  The space that was formerly Barclays Bank, was an empty shell and needed a makeover before they could open their doors to the public and deliver the long list of community initiatives they have planned. 

The Cosham Community Kettle asked VIVID for help with building supplies and paint, so the VIVID place shaper approached the local branch of Brewers who were only too happy to help this new charity with support! Justin offered paint that may have otherwise gone to waste and also agreed to mix paint to the Kettle’s corporate colours along with some sundries.  

The paint was delivered on Friday evening, with local volunteers working many hours that weekend to ensure the space will be welcoming with beautiful colours up on the walls. It is now ready for what they are hoping will be the start of a community café and meeting place for all ages.

Thank you so much Justin, the manager at Brewers, you and your friendly team are amazing. Your donation will help make this space into something truly special for this community.”
