Cambridge Commodities has launched an art competition to raise money to support Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
The Ely-based nutritional ingredient supplier is encouraging young people to get creative with a theme of ‘our NHS Heroes’.
Winners will have their artwork displayed online and, once the current crisis is over, the opportunity to have their artwork displayed opposite the Museum at Addenbrooke’s Hospital – one of the busiest corridors in the hospital - and will receive their artwork framed after the exhibition has finished.
The entry form is below. A suggested minimum donation of £3 is encouraged per entry (after you submit your entry) with donations going to ACT’s Emergency COVID-19 fund.
Submissions are welcomed from those aged 0–21 years
Deadline for entries Wednesday 1st July 2020.
Entries will be judged in four age categories by a panel including the Head of Addenbrooke’s Arts and representatives from Cambridge Commodities as well as ACT.
James Stevens CEO, Cambridge Commodities said: “As a local business, we’ve always felt it was our responsibility to support ACT. During this uncertain time our passion for showing our appreciation to the NHS front line only increases!"
We are thrilled to be hosting another exciting event which we hope will turn into an annual spectacle. Watching the sheer joy of last years' winners as they saw their artwork up on the walls of Addenbrooke’s next to the likes of Quentin Blake and Anita Klein was an unforgettable moment. We cannot wait to be a part of this amazing experience once again.
Fundraising for our local hospital has never been so important and we’d love everyone in our community to show their love and support by taking part and maybe we’ll find the next Elaine Pamphilon.”
