A BOY who won Maghull’s Rhino sculpture naming competition, has been presented with a prize.
Patrick Scanlon was handed his prize for choosing the winning name ‘Rainbow’ by Maghull Town Council Mayor, Councillor John Sayers.
He collected his winner’s prize of a family ticket to Knowsley Safari along with his mum Paula and sister Niamh. Two year old Patrick loves seeing Rainbow and the colours of the bottle tops it contains when he is out with his mum.
Rainbow was installed at Stafford Moreton Way by Friends of Maghull and District supported by Maghull Town Council and designed to collect plastic bottle tops to highlight the importance of recycling and endangered wildlife, while being an engaging friend to the community.
Community Services manager Phil Dillon said: “The name Rainbow sends a message of hope about the environment and ultimately the aim would be to reach a point where there is no longer a need to collect bottle tops.”
In the meantime Rainbow has proved a big hit , especially children who enthusiastically keep providing the bottle tops that provide Rainbow with colour. All the tops will be recycled and prevented from harming the environment.
