Flexibility to suit your needs...

Different Strokes has recently completed painting and decorating projects for care homes in Carlisle, Keswick and Kendal.

As always, our aim was to be as flexible as possible in meeting our client's needs - on this occasion, working through the night to ensure we weren't disrupting the day-to-day running of the homes.

Scrubbable paints were used for maximum durability, and our decorators got on really well with the residents and staff, making our time on site a pleasure for everyone involved.

Different Strokes sponsors the 2018 Kendal Winter League

We are proud to be sponsoring the Kendal Winter League running series for the fourth year in 2018.

We have previously helped many projects within the local community, as it is our ongoing belief that this is incredibly important, and we are pleased to once again be assisting local sport.

Up to 2000 runners will take part in the 12-race series, with the age of participants ranging from eight years old to 70+. The events are a great introduction for beginners and to promote sport to children, with races taking place over a variety of terrain in areas including Kendal, Elterwater, Settle, Sedbergh and Ulverston.

For all the event details and to register, visit the Helm Hill website at: http://www.helmhill.co.uk/index.php/races/80-races/114-kendal-winter-league


Different Strokes Sponsor Local Lads

Different Strokes have donated £250 to local football team, Burneside Reserves. Owner Robert Crawford was brought up in Burneside, he went to school there and has strong ties to the club and wanted to give something back. We supplied first aid kits and training material which will hopefully help Burneside Reserves hold on to their top of the league position and bring home the trophy. Come on Burneside! 

Cumbria Floods

Different Strokes were badly affected by the recent floods in Cumbria and Lancashire. Our head office was totally flooded out but we managed to re-open for business on Monday 7th December. We would like to offer our sympathy to any victims of these devastating floods and if we can be of any assistance, please get in touch.
