Johnstone’s unveils charity 125th anniversary packs

Covaplus 125 Tins_Group-2Johnstone’s Trade continues to mark its 125th anniversary in paint manufacturing after unveiling a limited edition Covaplus Vinyl Matt packdesigned to raise money for its chosen charity partner.

The eye-catching design can be found on the special edition five and ten litre packs of Covaplus Vinyl Matt in Brilliant White, with 10p from every one sold going to Johnstone’s charity partner When You Wish Upon a Star. The charity, which makes Wishes come true for children with life threatening conditions, has been supported by Johnstone’s since 2013, with the company raising thousands of pounds for it since then.

The product in the special packs remains the same as the one that decorators have come to know and trust, with the increased open time which allows more time to over roller back into a wet edge. This ensures a better finish, particularly in areas with critical light conditions, by providing a more even appearance to the finish.

Richard Mazurkiewicz, Johnstone’s Trade marketing manager, said:  “This year has been a great celebration to mark our 125th anniversary, with plenty of events and promotions for our customers to get involved in. We’re delighted that through these special packs we’re also able to involve our charity partner in to the celebrations and help raise funds for the children and families that it supports.”
