Calendar Competition Winners - October 2018

Regions schools receive £3250 in Calendar Competition prize money

40 local primary school children received their prizes at the annual calendar presentation ceremony

The winners of 24th annual Walker Morris Children’s Charity Calendar Competition were announced at a special presentation ceremony at the law firm’s offices on Saturday 20 October.

The 13 winners, one for each month of the year plus the coveted front cover, were presented with a hamper full of artists’ materials and a £250 cheque for their school. In addition, the 27 runners-up were also presented with an art prize. This year saw a record number of infant, junior and primary schools enter the Calendar Competition, with over 60 schools taking part.

The winners and runners-up were presented with their prizes by renowned Yorkshire artist, Ashley Jackson, who is also one of the competitions judges and Walker Morris Partner, Jeremy Moore.

All proceeds from the sale of the calendar go to Martin House Hospice. Martin House provides family-led care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions and supports families across Yorkshire both at the hospice and in the community.

David Smedley, Chairman and Calendar Competition Judge commented:

“As always, we are absolutely amazed by the exceptional artistic talent the young children in our region possess. The quality and the creativity of the artwork is a credit to the children, their teachers and the schools.

“Collaborative effort from the children, teachers, schools and our own Walker Morris team is at the very heart of the success and longevity of the calendar competition. It is this collaboration which ensures the enduring success of the calendar year on year and means that we are able to continue to support Martin House Hospice. So please do purchase a calendar and make a real difference to many young lives.”

Ashley Jackson added:

“I am extremely proud of the calendar for it brings together the fantastic achievement of the children who take part in the Walker Morris Competition, each month is a joy to see, but it also signifies the reason behind the calendar, ‘children supporting other children’.

“All money raised through the sale of the calendar is given to provide care and support at Martin House Hospice. I can see no better use of art than to help others.”

Calendars are now on sale for £6.00 with all monies raised going to Martin House Hospice. Please contact gemma.carrodus@walkermorris.co.uk or tel +44 (0)113 283 2500.
