There is some fantastic work carried out here for people right across the community, the new building is going to be brilliant so I would urge everyone to take to their computers and phones and vote to try and win the redecoration from Johnstones Paint for Pompey Place" Johnny Ertl
Pompey Place in Anson Road, part of Pompey in the Community has been shortlisted with Dagenham, Milton Keynes and Presto for the makeover prize in the Johnstone’s Paint Community Spirit campaign.
The hub is hoping to come out on top in a public vote to win the competition, which is being run in conjunction with the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Community projects around the UK were invited to submit applications, with the winner receiving a redecoration of their facility.
More than 50 entries were received, with a judging panel selecting four for the shortlist based on criteria such as the impact the project has on the community and the urgency for redecoration.
Clare Martin, CEO of Pompey in the Community believes winning a complete redecoration of their facility would provide a huge boost to their work.
PITC has taken over the venue next door which will be fitted out in the next few months.
She said: “We have a new venue next door to our existing premises which we will be fitted out in the next few months and will house the work we do within Pompey Place.
“Our work assists people of all ages and backgrounds with an emphasis on the vulnerable members of the community, so it would be fantastic if we could win the redecoration prize for our new building.”
Anyone who votes will be entered into a prize draw to win a pair of tickets to the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final at Wembley on March 22nd.
