Catalyst lunchroom gets a make over!

School visitors to Catalyst will notice a vast difference when they break to have their lunch thanks to a community initiative from a local company. As part of their corporate social responsibility project, Rowlands Pharmacy wanted to volunteer some time to help a local charity. So on Wednesday, seven members of staff from Rowlands, visited Catalyst where they designed and painted two large murals to brighten up the walls in the lunchroom.

Commenting on the artwork, Meryl Jameson, Catalyst’s Marketing Officer said “It’s made a huge difference to a room that, at the beginning of the week, was dull and lifeless. We are extremely grateful to the team from Rowlands Pharmacy who managed to paint both murals in just one day. I’m certain the visiting pupils will notice the difference and appreciate their efforts.”

Kathryn Gill from Rowlands Pharmacy led the team and was also the initial point of contact, “We wanted to choose a local project that was connected to the pharmaceutical industry and with Catalyst‘s strong ties to the community though its educational programme it was the obvious choice”.

Taking part from Rowlands Pharmacy were Alison Marsh, Kathryn Gill, Mike Johnson, Neil Stewart, Sara Welsh, Steve Green and Managing Director Kenny Black.
