Inspirations Paint & Colour Community Benefits Program

The Pony Club Association of NSW is pleased to announce we have joined up to the Inspirations Paint & Colour Community Benefits Program. The program will support the ongoing administrative efforts of the state office by way of an annual donation based on store purchases made by Pony Club members.

Community Benefits Donation Cards are being sent to club secretaries in the June mail out for distribution to members. Unfortunately not all clubs have a store located within a half hour radius and thus will not receive a card. If you do not receive a card but would like one please contact Lisa in the state office via email or telephone 02 4229 8977.

Each time you shop at an Inspirations, or 3D Paint & Colour, store you should present your card and 5% of the total purchase amount will be donated to The Pony Club Association of NSW. Donations are paid annually in July.

For further information on the program, or to find your nearest store, you can visit the Inspirations Paint & Colour website on

To further grow and develop Pony Club NSW additional funds is vital. We trust you will show your support by making Inspirations Paint & Colour your first choice for all your painting needs. Thank you.
