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

St John’s Hospice has launched its ‘Hospice Heroes’ campaign to encourage Key Stage One and Two primary school-aged pupils to get involved with its fundraising activities by creating artwork to appear on a cardboard collection box for supporters to donate their loose change.

St John’s Hospice Events Coordinator Richard Smith said: “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.

Richard added: “This is just the start of our Hospice Heroes campaign and we’ll be creating fun, new ways for young people to get involved in our fundraising, which goes towards supporting Doncaster patients and families who need our care.”
