Local art competition for Addenbrooke’s
Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust and Cambridge Commodities are running an art competition for young people to raise money for the local hospital.
The competition is around NHS Super Heroes and entries for the competition can be in pen, pencil, crayon, pastel or paint. The art might explore what the word ‘superhero’ means to you and doctors and nurses doing a great job in these current times.
The charity is suggesting a donation of £3 for the entry and money will go towards the charity. The winners will have the opportunity to have their artwork displayed at the hospital and will have their artwork framed after the exhibition has ended.
The deadline is Monday 1st June 2020.
