It’s time to get colourful! To celebrate the welcome return of their very colourful Colour Run, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice has launched its Kids Summer Art Competition 2022 on the theme of COLOUR!

Open to 16 year olds and under and free to enter, you can draw or paint anything you like as long as it’s your brightest, most colourful picture ever!

Rachel Titherington, marketing manager at Forget Me Not, said: “Whatever you draw or paint is up to you – perhaps you and your family enjoying our Colour Run, or Russell Bear under a rainbow, or the most colourful animal or bird you can imagine. We want to be blown away by how colourful your picture is – so don’t hold back! Good luck!”

The charity’s Royal Patron, HRH Princess Beatrice, will once again be judging the entries and there are some great prizes to be won.

The closing date to submit your picture is September 12 2022.

Visit for everything you need to get started and to enter.
