Rail-ly good result

Rail-ly good result from painting day More than 2,000 railings were rubbed down and re-painted when the charity Signposts gave St Mary’s Church a spruce-up. More than 60 volunteers from the charity, which helps homeless people in Luton, were joined by Luton MPs Kelvin Hopkins and Gavin Shuker, and mayor Syd Knight.
The Signposts team included clients past and present, staff,volunteers from Asda, HSS and G Casino and parishioners. Volunteers also brought along friends and family to help out. Equipment was donated free of charge by HSS Hire, Plumbs DIY, Unique Employment, Crown Paints, G Casino, Cousins and St Mary’s Church, paint was supplied by Luton Borough Council, and the Heights pub donated a round of drinks for all of the workers afterwards.
Phyl Rainey from Signposts said: “The day was a great example of homeless people working for the community. “We pride ourselves on the effort we put into projects, and are very often praised by pleased customers. Clients say they really enjoy the chance to get involved with the community, the sense of pride at their achievements working as part of a team.”
