Paint Wanted

Over the years our policy in dealing with graffiti has been to paint it over as soon as possible and that has been pretty successful in detering further desecration of  brick and concrete walls on our cycle paths.
Surplus emulsion paint has previously been available free from the Raynesway tip, but now it seems that we have to buy it at £1/litre after paying £3 to register.
This we will have to do, but if anyone out there has any emulsion paint left over from a decorating job, we can take it off your hands and put it to good use immediatley as we have a large area of wall beneath the A50 tunnel which has been attacked.
Colour is not too important - white preferred but shades of magnolia accepted.It all mixes quite well in a large dustbin.  Also we need masonary paint or undercoat in shades of red/brown to cover graffiti on red brick walls.
We are still collecting combustible materials for our Rangers Bonfire on November 3rd at Mickleover.
