Budding young artists needed to design archery and NHS-themed calendar

Calling junior archers! We know how much you all love to be creative, and now’s your chance to put your skills to work for a very good cause.

Egertec Targets in Hampshire is looking to create an archery and NHS-themed 2021 calendar, and is inviting children (under 16s) to draw a colourful picture on A4 plain paper of anything you like relating to archery and the NHS, or ideally both together in the same picture.

Egertec will then select 12 pictures for the months of the year. Egertec’s owner, Hugh Skilling, said: “I’ve been meaning to do this calendar for a couple of years, and have some good people around that can help produce it. I thought after this tough year it’d be nice to give something back to the NHS. Please don’t be upset if your picture is not chosen. I’m thinking of doing a montage where we can see all the pictures on the back page or similar.”

Please write your name and age on the back of your work of art, and post in a hardback A4 envelope by 5 December, to:

Manor Farm,

All proceeds from the calendars (price yet to be confirmed) will go to the NHS. Calendars will be available to order from the Egertec website.

Hugh said: “Please tag all your friends who might like to help – the more the merrier! Let’s all stand together as one archery family and give something back to the amazing heroes of the NHS.”
