Muja Power Station team members injected new life into the Collie PCYC by giving the community centre a much-needed face lift.

Members of the power station's volunteer program worked to paint the building and make necessary repairs.

Synergy acting turbine group manager Rob Dupree said the experience for the team was highly rewarding, providing a unique opportunity for team building.

"Everyone really embraced the task at hand and, despite the 40-degree day making work conditions tough, enthusiasm did not wane," he said.

"As the Muja volunteer program progresses, we look forward to being able to provide hands-on support to Collie like this more regularly."

The upgrade works was an all-day affair where workers also spend time understanding the centre's services and how it benefits youth in the region.

Collie PCYC thanked the workers through its social media and said it would bring great joy to all the young people utilising the centre each day.

"This wonderful group of girls and guys went through the centre from top to bottom, painting and repairing as they went," it wrote.

"They completed a phenomenal amount of work in a day - easily three years' work completed in one day for us."

PCYC centres provide a range of recreational activities and specialised support programs for younger people in Collie and surrounding communities.
