ALL EYES will be on children's artistic touch at a brand new competition.
Specsavers in Thornbury is inviting all primary school pupils to redesign the traditional Royal British Legion poppy ahead of Remembrance Sunday.
Children will be able to enter one of two age categories: four to seven years old and eight to eleven years old. The cut off date for submissions is Saturday, October 12
As well as a £15 gift voucher and a Specsavers goody bag, each of the winning designs will be printed on a T-shirt by The Anchor Inn.
The art contest will be judged by Thornbury Mayor Pam Shipp who will choose a winner.
An award presentation ceremony will take place at the store on Saturday, October 26.
Staff will hold a cake sale to mark the occasion in aid of the Thornbury branch of the Royal British Legion.
Claire Stone, store manager at Specsavers said: “With Remembrance Day not far off, we wanted to do something to support our local branch of the Royal British Legion. Involving local school children is a great way to get them to think about the significance of the day and we’re hoping to raise a bit of money as well."
