Eleanor has prize in her sights!

Post on 15th May 2019

A delighted ten-year-old from West Hallam has her eyes on the prize after winning a national colouring competition in aid of charity.

Eleanor Attenborough won a set of books by children’s favourite David Walliams in our national colouring competition and received her prize at our Ilkeston branch.

Youngsters were encouraged to submit their creative designs with proceeds from the £1 entry fee going to Alzheimer’s Society.

Emma Stevenson, manager of the Bath Street branch, said: “Alzheimer’s Society is our chosen charity and this was a fun way to engage children and raise awareness of its work. Eleanor’s vibrant entry was a worthy winner.”

Mother Joanne said: “Eleanor was ecstatic. She enters quite a few competitions but never really wins. She loves drawing and reading and writing and is a big fan of David Walliams.”

We are supporting Alzheimer’s Society as our chosen charity for a fifth successive year because there is evidence of a link between uncorrected hearing loss and dementia, including Alzheimer’s.
