Give It Some Welly Art Competition Winners Announced

Date: 17 September 2019

During the summer, children across Yorkshire were invited to put their colouring skills to the test and enter the charity’s Give It Some Welly Art Competition.

Budding Picassos and Monets created a wealth of colourful wellies as part of the campaign which saw people across the region wearing, wanging, planting and painting their wellies to raise money for Yorkshire Cancer Research.

The competition judges were particularly impressed by the designs created by the three winners, who were each awarded with book tokens for their efforts.

First and third prizes went to nine-year-olds Lily Goodall and Alfred Allison, both pupils at Willow Tree Primary School, Harrogate. 

The second prize winner was Eleanor Smith, age five, from Pudsey.

Juliet Glendinning, Director of Brand and Relationships at Yorkshire Cancer Research, said: “A huge congratulations to Lily, Alfred and Eleanor. We received so many entries to our competition but these three definitely stood out as they were so colourful and creative. We hope they enjoy their book tokens.”
