The Painted Chair is planning to chalk up an amazing total for the NSPCC

Annie Sloan stockists in Liverpool are holding a special late night event on Friday 21st November from 3pm–9pm at The Painted Chair to help raise a whopping £25,000 for the NSPCC.

The Painted Chair is inviting shoppers to enjoy some mulled wine and mince pies whilst watching wonderfully creative painters provide demonstrations, hints and tips on how to create unique pieces of painted furniture using Annie Sloan’s decorative paint, Chalk Paint™. With advice on colour selection and techniques, the event will give budding interior designers the confidence to use Annie Sloan’s paint and waxes at home. The event is free to the public with a raffle, a donation box and cake sale on hand to encourage visitors to help raise vital funds for the NSPCC.

The independant business is one of over 250 Annie Sloan Stockists across the UK who have joined forces in a bid to help raise £25,000 for the NSPCC, UK’s leading children’s charity specialising in child protection.  Keep up with the news on this special event on Facebook, Twitter and Instragram by following #AnnieSloanLate.

Janet Woolley, manager of The Painted Chair said, “We have been part of the Annie Sloan Stockist community since May. As a group, the UK stockists collectively decided that if we joined forces we could potentially raise a lot of money for charity.”

Sara Williams, NSPCC regional corporate fundraising manager said, “We are delighted that The Painted Chair is supporting the NSPCC. The money raised will help us to run our vital services and helplines that are so often a lifeline for vulnerable children and young people. It will make a massive difference to the lives of children in Liverpool and across the UK. On behalf of all the children I would like to say thank you to The Painted Chair, staff and customers. Ninety per cent of our funding comes from donations and we simply couldn’t continue to provide our services without the continued generosity of supporters like The Painted Chair.”
