One of six locations run by the Mary Seacole Housing Association, the facility held a successful open day to celebrate its recent National Lottery Fund award and renovation. Gibbs & Dandy supplied the paint for the revamp.

The Mayor of Luton, Councillor Don Worlding, as well as volunteers, staff and residents attended the open day, held on 24th February, and were given guided tours of the vibrant new hostel.

Tania Tams, marketing director for Gibbs & Dandy, said: "Gibbs & Dandy prides itself on its closeness to its local customers and the community. Supporting initiatives, like the hostel refurbishment, is one of the many ways each of our individual branches take a responsible role in its community.

"The work that Mary Seacole Housing Association does is invaluable and provides important services that not only improve the lives of its clients but benefit the community as a whole.

"The refurbishment looks great and we were more than happy to provide resources for such an important cause."
