Plunket Otago and Southland acting area manager Jocelyn Johnstone said the ''superb'' volunteer decorators, a mix of BNZ and Plunket staff, got an ''amazing amount of painting done''.

The volunteers painted the interior of four rooms in the new Lorne St centre, making it look ''outstandingly different''.

''It is not a flash building and was looking rather grotty, but by the time I left it was looking a whole lot better,'' Mrs Johnstone said.

The BNZ staff were working as part of the bank's Closed for Good volunteering programme.
