We’re inviting local schoolchildren to enter a competition to design a new fundraising collection box.

Our ‘Hospice Heroes’ campaign is open to Key Stage One and Two primary school-aged pupils to get them involved with our fundraising activities by creating artwork to appear on a cardboard collection box for supporters to donate their loose change.

We’re reaching out to local pupils to create bright, eye-catching artwork to encourage people to make charitable donations, no matter how small for St John’s Hospice.

The entries should be in colour, in any media such as pencil, pen, or paint, using our downloadable template.

The competition will be judged by the St John’s Hospice Team, along with patients and families in their care, with the winners appearing on the new charity boxes.

There will also be a prize for the overall winner in each Key Stage One and Two category.

The event at St John’s Information Centre off Weston Road will take place between 10am and 1pm to raise much needed funds for St John’s Hospice, which provides specialist palliative and end of life care for local patients and families.

As well as offering an opportunity to enjoy a cuppa and a catch up, we’ll have homemade bakes and handmade crafts for sale, along with a tombola and raffle, so we look forward to welcoming supporters – old and new – to join us!
