EALING schools are being given the chance to win a makeover.

Decorating and DIY specialist Leyland SDM is marking the start of the new academic year by launching its Big School Makeover campaign.

Primary and secondary schools across Ealing and beyond can stake their claim for the prize, with one winner scooping £5,000 worth of paint and DIY products.

Two others will win £2,500 each to spend at Leyland SDM as runners-up.

Martin Hastings, CEO of Leyland SDM, said: “We are a London centric business, with 33 stores in the capital. We’re passionate about the city and its communities and this is one way we’re demonstrating our support this year.”

Schools in Ealing can enter by visiting www.leylandsdm.co.uk/bigschoolmakeover and submitting 100 words explaining how the funding would help.

Entries are open from now until midnight on October 20. A judging team at Leyland SDM will create a 10-school shortlist before a public vote is held to decide the winner.

Leyland SDM has a store in Ealing on The Mall.
