I'm so excited and proud to announce that I'm the judge for a local charity colouring competition for children in collaboration with CLIC Sergeant!
As part of their fundraising for building a new home for families to stay whilst their loved ones receive treatment in Southampton, local children can enter a colouring competition and I've been asked to pick the winner - how exciting!
Here's an excerpt from the press release with more information about what CLIC Sergeant are doing:
In support of the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, Southampton City Council Libraries have teamed up with CLIC Sargent, to launch a drawing competition that local children can enter to help other children who are seriously ill.
The charity is planning to open the new haven, called ‘Jean’s House’ this autumn, providing vital free accommodation for young patients and their families during cancer treatment at nearby specialist Southampton Hospital.
The competition, which starts on Thursday, May 10 and lasts till the end of July, will be hosted at the five Southampton council Libraries where local children can draw a picture of their favourite book, with a suggested donation of £1.
The winner, selected by local illustrator and blogger, Amy Harwood, will have their picture framed and hung in the new house.
Amy Harwood, said: “I’m honoured to be a judge for this competition and I can’t wait to see what the local children create. It’s great that the community is getting involved with this amazing campaign, the new home in Southampton will help and support so many families.”
