Would your child like to enter an art competition - to help a woodland project in Maghull?

Would your child like to enter an art competition - to help a woodland project in Maghull?

by Danielle Thompson (April 2020)

A NEW woodland community campaign is being launched this week – starting with a children’s rainbow and trees themed art competition!

The Friends of Maghull and District are launching their new environmental crowdfunding campaign ‘Woodend Community Woodland Project’ with a children’s contest – with chocolate as the prize!

Children aged five to 16 years old can create a ‘Rainbow and Tree’ picture, take a photograph or scan it and send it as an email, including names and ages, to woodendcwp@gmail.com before the closing date of Monday (April 27).

Every picture submitted, with a suggested pledge of £2, will be displayed on their page ‘Woodend Community Woodland Project’ on crowdfunding website Spacehive.

The winners in each age group (under fives; six-11 years; 12-16 years) will be given Easter eggs donated to the Trustees by Morrisons Maghull.

The group, who recently completed their successful wildflower crowdfunding campaign on Stafford Moreton Way in Maghull, have raised £12,694 of their full target of £24,081 online.

But time is ticking, as they only have until October 29 to complete their fund-raising challenge - or all of the money pledged will be lost.

Dr Frank Sharp, Friends of Maghull and District trustee, said: “We plan to reinvigorate a historic woodland entrance to Maghull, with a welcoming, accessible, iconic and engaging wildlife friendly space, focusing on enhancing the environment, history, community, legacy.

“Whilst visiting the Welcome to Maghull -‘Woodend Community Woodland Project website, have a good look around. Please consider a minimum pledge of £2, which is optional - and if you like the project, please click the ‘like’ option. All the larger pledges/donations help the donors decide who to allocate money to, so everything is really appreciated.”

“We are so looking forward to seeing your amazing pictures!”
