Seashell Trust follows Deafblind Awareness Week with #makingsensoryofitall campaign

3rd July 2020, 9:06 am

With so many children still not able to return to school, Stockport charity Seashell Trust, is launching a competition to support home schooling, focused on learning about the senses. The aim is to raise awareness of some of the challenges that the children and young people at Seashell, some of whom have more than one sensory impairment, face. As well as keeping children busy and interested in the final push up to the summer break!

The competition is open to all types of art from paintings and sculptures to knitting and needle felting, along the theme of the senses and will run from 29th June to 31st July.

The first theme is sight and Seashell will be adding lots of sensory information to their social media feed over the next five weeks for inspiration so are also asking people to follow them to learn something new! There will be a winner for each one of the five senses, who will each receive a £20 Amazon voucher, thanks to our friends at Amazon at Manchester Airport.

Entry to the competition is free but we’d love people to consider making a small donation to help us continue our vital work during COVID-19. They can click here to donate. If just 50 families donated £3 each we could provide specialist apps to enable our families to communicate whilst apart.

Entries can be made by posting a picture of your creation on Seashell’s social media using the hashtag #makingsensoryofitall or by sending an email of the artwork to us at [email protected]. Please note we can’t accept entries via ‘stories’. All competition terms and conditions are on the Seashell Trust website.

Please contact [email protected] with any questions about getting involved.
