Turner Broadcasting help repaint HCLC’s offices!

Hackney Community Law Centre is extremely grateful to Turner Broadcasting for helping us begin repainting our offices, in order to make the Centre a more welcoming and pleasant environment for our clients and local community.

On Friday 15th June 2012, a team of volunteers from the Turner Broadcasting London’s office spent the entire day at HCLC completely repainting the kitchen, our volunteers room, all our bathrooms, clients’ waiting reception area and all the other communal areas in the Law Centre.

Turner Broadcasting has a strong Corporate Social Responsibility team and its staff are given special days off to volunteer with charities and organisations in need.

We are extremely grateful to Andrew, Steve, Mandy and Alexia from the Turner team (pictured above) who not only helped us paint the building but also provided all of the paint and materials required!

The office is looking much much better already.

Now to replace the carpets!

See a selection of  pictures from our extremely enjoyable painting fun day below!

Thank you very, very much again to Alexia, Mandy, Steve and Andrew for really making a difference to the Law Centre’s working environment.  See you all at our summer reception to thank you properly! 🙂
