Talented designers at Bungay High School have helped create a logo for the Halesworth Carers' Fund.
As reported previously, last year’s year 10 pupils were asked to submit entries for a competition for a logo for thef und, which would be suitable for letterheads, posters, flyers, signs and so on.
Between them about 50 entries sere submitted.
“We are very grateful to Clinton Gillett, assistant head teacher, and the many participating students,” said Paddy Flegg, publicity officer for the fund.
On Monday this week members of the fund, along with Waveney MP Peter Aldous, went to the school to announce the winning entries.
The judging had taken place at the school on September 12 when fund chairman Paddy Cox was joined by Roger Bacon of Mustard Creations of Halesworth, Nigel Bedingfield of Iceni.com of Bungay, and Bridget Morley, all respected graphic designers.
“There were some really excellent entries and judging was difficult and quite lengthy. Finally, three were chosen as first, second and highly commended - this last for a design which was especially good but not quite appropriate for our project,” said Mrs Flegg.
The presentation of prizes took place at the school when the winners’ names were announced.
Sean O’Neill, head teacher, spoke and congratulated all the students and said he hoped this would not be the last co-operation between the school and the fund.
Paddy Cox then spoke and welcomed the students and congratulated them for their excellent work.
“On behalf of the committee of Halesworth Carers’ Fund we thank you all so much for your support, your enthusiasm, your understanding.
“You have given us what was needed, from a younger generation - your interpretation of dementia care within your own community, shown by producing such fine examples through your fine art work.
“Three notable graphic designers spent much time in judging this work,of such high standard. Eventually a winner was chosen along with a second prize and a highly commended. But I hasten to add all you students are winners, helping us with our newly launched project. Bungay High School can be proud,” said Mr Cox.
The prizes were given out by Peter Aldous, MP, who spoke and congratulated each of the winners.
The winning design was created by Cerys Roscoe which showed a blue elephant with bubbles.
Second was Rianna Coote and Jake Turner was highly commended.
All the entries are to go on display at Halesworth Library from September 30 and it is hoped members of the public will take the time to see what superb entries were received.
This has been a busy time for the Fund. September 4tsaw the matinee showing of the wonderful film ‘’Quartet’’, which Simon Raven of the Cut offered to screen for our project funds.
Paddy Cox spoke to the audience before the film and thanked the 126 happy people who came to support the fund and enjoy the film.
Paddy’s daughter, Tracy, and granddaughter, Jess, ran a draw for the many donated prizes and raised £140.
With this sum, the ticket money and donations from people unable to attend, the fund raised a total of £528.
