Notts-based charity receives over £97,000 from decorating firm

A two year partnership between West Yorkshire-based PPG Architectural Coatings UK & Ireland and Nottingham-based charity When You Wish Upon a Star (WYWUAS) has now entered its third year, following strengthened support from PPG’s employees nationwide.

The company, which manufactures popular paint brands Johnstone’s and Leyland, has raised a total of £97,105 for the children’s charity – helping to grant the wishes of children living with life threatening illnesses across the country.

Nicola Brien, regional fundraising manager at WYWUAS, said: “The continued support of PPG is invaluable to us as it helps us to bring happiness to families during hard and emotional times.

“The funds raised will help us to create precious memories for these children and their loved ones, which remain in their hearts forever. We are delighted PPG has chosen to support us for a third year”.

Last year saw PPG donate £52,000 to WYWUAS, helping the to take children on an action-packed trip to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London.

PPG raised the funds through activities including WYWUAS’s Wish Week, coffee and cake events and bake-off challenges.

Brien added: “Our corporate supporters are wonderful people, and their support and time really makes a difference to our work. We encourage all of our supporters to get creative when fundraising; we love to see how different businesses and individuals make events their own and have fun while fundraising”.
