Colchester-based BC Designs has donated £1,000 to the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal after pledging to give £50 for every blue or yellow painted bath that is sold between April and July 2022.
The donation was a result of retailers utilising the company’s painting service, which is available across their best-selling Acrylic Boat Bath, the Omnia, as well as being offered across their metal boat baths including copper, tin, nickel and brass versions.
Darren Allison, MD at BC Designs, said: “Having continued to watch the daily updates on the war in Ukraine, you cannot help being moved by the suffering that the people of Ukraine are experiencing. The team at BCDesigns has also been blown away by the bravery and resilience shown. Our donation pledge was a way of being able to raise money for the appeal as our painting service is popular with consumers. The idea behind the blue and yellow colours was the Ukrainian flag, which remains synonymous with their plight.
“Our plan is to look at further ways we can support the appeal in the future, with hopefully another donation pledge in early 2023.”
