A lottery grant has allowed a Preston charity to give its city headquarters a lick of paint.
Preston Samaritans in St Wilfrid Street won £20,000 to do up their offices and support centre.
The charity has been helping people from its city centre terraced house for more than 30 years.
Volunteer David applied to the Postcode Lottery and the charity were successful in their bid.
A number of Preston firms donated items and their time to doing up the offices.

The work cost around £41,000 with the charity raising the rest of the money themselves.
Preston’s Mayor councillor John Collins attended the reopening of the offices to cut the ribbon.
