IT WAS a case of painting by numbers when bank staff swapped cash tills for paintbrushes in aid of Cornwall's multiple sclerosis (MS) centre.

The staff from Barclays Corporate, based in Lemon Street in Truro, dropped in to give the Merlin MS Centre at Hewas Water a lick of paint.

Ellie May from the centre said: "Many of our volunteers are either living with MS or they care for someone who does; it's therefore not suitable to ask them to take on a job of this size."

The charity centre is the only place of its kind in the county, offering a range of expert care, support and subsidised therapy to improve the lives of those living with MS and other neurological conditions, their families and carers.
