Volunteers, Tom Varney, 12, and Angelo Marinoni,16, used some of the recycled paint to brighten up a kitchen at Vassell Ward Youth and Community Project as part of its 20th anniversary renovations. More than 300 million litres of paint is sold every year in Britain and around 100 million litres goes unused.
