A Bluebird Care franchise marked Children’s Mental Health Week earlier this month by hosting an art competition.
The competition involved asking children to send in their own Bluebird Care design to the branch, which provides care for people living in Reading, Wokingham, Windsor, Maidenhead and Bracknell.
The winning artwork will be turned into a pin badge for all members of the team who have completed their ‘Safeguarding Children’ training.
This course is delivered by Karen Anderson, who has been training Bluebird Care staff for more than 12 years.
Judging the competition, she said: “We would like to personally thank all the children that entered into our competition. The amazing designs will be turned into one big bluebird and displayed in our office.”
The winning design was drawn by William (pictured) from Woodley, aged 10.
Anderson added: “The reason I picked William’s design was the bird has all the colours of Bluebird Care and looks extremely proud. The bird on the design also has its eyes closed, which means the bird is listening, and this is a very important aspect of care.”
Children’s Mental Health Week took place from 1-7 February 2021. This year’s theme was Express Yourself.
