By bringing a splash of colour to an illustrated beach scene, one lucky participant could win themselves a brand new iPad
The first submissions to our NHS colouring competition are in, and we think you’ll agree the standard so far is proving difficult to beat!

“The competition launched in April and we’ve already had a tremendous response,”

explains Hannah Webb, Communications Apprentice for the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust.

“We’ve had 22 entries so far, with some exceptional work being submitted, but there’s still plenty of time for any budding young artists that wish to enter, and for one lucky participant the chance to win a top prize!”
