Richard Fenton staircase painting for Salford Foundation

Richard Fenton recently completed his Waterman Aspen in the Community day, volunteering at The Shed at Salford Foundation.

His task was to paint firstly a grey undercoat and then yellow anti-slip paint on the outside staircase for the organisation’s office building. As some of the steps are at head height (when walking at ground level) the outside faces and underneath sides of the steps were painted in yellow to improve visibility. He also painted the edges of the step outside the fire exit door as this was previously easy to miss.

The charity employs visually-impaired staff, who have previously struggled to navigate this area of the premises, so hopefully this will make a difference to everyone’s safety.

Well done to Richard on such a productive volunteering day.
