Sweetpeas Children's Centre in Plymouth gets a makeover by NatWest staff

Paintbrushes and sandpaper, rather than calculators and pens, were the order of the day for a team of NatWest Managers as they paid a visit to Barnardo’s Sweetpeas Children's Centre in Plymouth.

12 March 2012

The Centre was taken over by Barnardo’s six months ago and finding it in need of a revamp the Barnardo's team called on NatWest to see if they would be able to give them a helping hand. Matt Rawlings, NatWest’s local CEO for Plymouth was only too willing to help and rounded up his colleagues from across the South West to spend a day painting the centre.

Commenting on their experience, Matt Rawlings, NatWest’s local CEO for Plymouth, said: "It’s very important to us as a team that we are part of, and contribute fully to, the local community in which we all live and work – a commitment we have all signed up to in our Customer Charter. As a result being able to do something like this to help bring this commitment to life, for a local charity in need of some help, was fantastic and we have all taken away a great feeling of achievement."

Wendy Johnson, Barnardo’s strategic children’s centre manager, said: "We are sincerely grateful for the generous time and effort of the NatWest volunteers. Thanks to their hard work, the building now offers a brighter and fresher environment which will hopefully encourage even more families to seek support if needed."
