The sun is shining, summer is in the air and we need your help to say thank you.

If your child is a painter, sketcher, drawer or mess maker of any ability, then we want to hear from you! We’re creating a collection of Family Fund thank you cards designed by children for all our generous donors and fundraisers who support our work, but we need some fantastic drawings to make this possible.

Entries will be judged in three groups:

  • Under 8’s
  • 8 – 12 years
  • 13 – 17 years

The winning entry in each age group will receive an Argos gift voucher worth £20, plus a pack of thank you cards in their design to give to friends and family.

The more creative the design, the better! We’d love something that captures the way we help families and obviously the words “thank you”, but other than that anything goes.

Entry deadline – Monday 4 September
