writing competition final

Entries have now closed for our Writing Competition in association with Blue Max Banner and the judging panel of Michael Morpurgo, Sara Crowe, Lynne Chitty and Jenny will now read through all the stories and poems to determine first and second place in each category. Many thanks to everyone who entered in both the childrens’ and adults categories. We were astounded by the interest of so many people. Particular thanks to the parents, grandparents and teachers who facilitated many of the children to enter. Your help and support is much appreciated.

We are hoping to announce the winners on August 7th and they will be invited to a presentation at our Open Day at the Sanctuary on August 30th. Results will also be posted here on our website and social media sites. For the winners of the junior categories, their schools will be contacted after the summer holidays to arrange selection and delivery of the sportswear.

Finally, many thanks to Blue Max Banner who has supported this event and helped us to make it bigger and better than we ever could have imagined.
