Firms launching a revamp of their brands is a familiar news in this space. Yet, what Perfetti van Melle delivered last month is truly different, giving a fresh look for three local schools.

The entire UK team of the confectionery giant closed their Windsor HQ for a day and joined forces to give local schools St Cuthbert’s, St Peter’s and Queen Anne’s a revamp.

The effort was part of a company-wide activity to give back to the local area.

The team at St. Cuthbert’s spruced up fences, removed overgrown shrubs and cleared the school grounds to make more space for the children to play. At St. Peter’s the focus was a full refresh and paint of the well-used school corridors, while St. Anne’s garden was tidied and cleared of weeds and debris.

Claire Cox, marketing manager at Perfetti van Melle, said: “As one of the UK’s leading confectionery manufacturers, we’re committed to giving back where we can.

“This experience was not only beneficial to the schools we visited but to our company as a whole – we saw fantastic teamwork as everyone mucked in together and left feeling hugely rewarded.”
