Sign up for the 2019 London Revolution now
Over the years, Dulux Trade has raised over £682,000 for The Outward Bound Trust; an educational charity that uses the outdoors to help develop young people from all walks of life. Each Outward Bound Trust course is unique and gives young people the skills to become more confident and more capable at school, college and in the workplace.
One of the main fundraising events for The Outward Bound Trust is the London Revolution. This 300km bike ride takes place over a May weekend, and you can enter as a solo rider or as a team of up to 5 people. There is also a special Walk/Run over a half-marathon distance, ending at the London Revolution basecamp at Windsor Racecourse. The route takes you around London and the Home Counties, and you'll join hundreds of other riders in a colourful and enjoyable weekend.

Recycle your leftover paint
Did you know than an estimated 50 million litres of the 320 million litres of paint sold in the UK each year go to waste? This paint is either thrown away or stored in homes or garages despite over 50% of it still being usable. Community RePaint is a UK wide paint reuse network, sponsored by Dulux, that aims to collect this leftover paint and redistribute it to benefit individuals, families, communities and charities in need at an affordable cost.
For 25 years we've supported Community RePaint, transforming places and lives with leftover paint. You can also get involved by recycling your leftover paint. Head to the Community RePaint website to find out more.
