Paint shop workers help QCWA

THE commitment and loyalty to the community from some local businesses is astounding.

Earle's Paint Place painter James Smith was enthused to lend a helping hand to the Country Women's Association after their building was vandalised.

Mr Smith decided to help after seeing a story in The Observer about the graffiti.

"It's a good organisation and I thought we should give them a bit of assistance," he said.

Earle's Paint Place manager Belinda Earle said she was horrified when James told her about the graffiti.

They both agreed to clean the building free of charge.

"When I called Jan she couldn't believe it, she said 'Are you for real?'" Mr Smith said.

The two members of the small business, who didn't know any members of QCWA previously, gave their time to clean the graffiti yesterday.

Hopefully more businesses will follow their lead in doing good deeds.
