Young Person’s ‘NHS heroes’ Art Competition
Cambridge Commodities has launched an art competition over the Easter holidays to raise money to support NHS staff at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
The Ely-based nutritional ingredient supplier is encouraging everyone 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.
A suggested minimum donation of £3 is encouraged per entry with donations going to ACT’s Emergency COVID-19 fund, which will provide extra medical equipment, hot meals, psychological support and whatever else staff may need during the coronavirus crisis.
Submissions are welcomed from those aged 0–21 years through the Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT) website at: www.act4addenbrookes.org.uk/artcomp with the deadline for entries Monday 1st June 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.”
