There is still time to vote and help a Milton Keynes charity to paint a brighter future, thanks to a national makeover competition.

MK SNAP, based on Bourton Low, has been shortlisted to win the Johnstone’s Paint Community Spirit campaign - and voting closes on Friday.

And anyone who votes for MK SNAP to scoop the prize will be entered into a prize draw from which the winner will receive a pair of tickets to the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final at Wembley on March 22.

MK SNAP caters for more than 100 learners and offers professional support to people with a range of learning difficulties and challenges.

Maureen McColl, chief executive of MK SNAP, said that winning a complete redecoration of their facility would provide a huge boost to the charity.

She added: “We have a purpose built centre which was opened in 2008 but it hasn’t been painted since.

“The more colourful areas of the centre create a really special atmosphere amongst the learners and we are hoping to replicate that across the whole centre if we win this fantastic prize.

“Our learners are all very special people and it would make a real difference to their lives.”

She added: “We would like to thank Johnstone’s Paint for providing us with this opportunity through a fantastic initiative and would urge everyone to vote for us.”
