Crown Paints answers the call to help rural communities

Crown Paints has helped to breathe new life into hundreds of rural phone boxes as part of a nationwide scheme to provide local communities with access to vital emergency medical equipment. As part of the ‘Minutes Matter’ scheme launched by BT and the Community HeartBeat Trust, life-saving defibrillators have been installed in local phone boxes which were first refurbished with free paint donated by members of the British Coatings Federation (BCF).  To date Crown has supplied undercoat and red paint via its nationwide network of Crown Decorating Centres to renovate 130 phone boxes, which have each been equipped with a defibrillator to provide urgent treatment following a cardiac arrest.
