UK's Leading Cutlery Company Supports ChildHope with Unique Spoon Design CompetitionArthur Price, the family owned, British cutlery manufacturer is working in partnership with ChildHope, to produce a limited edition teaspoon designed by school children from Uganda as part of a special competition.
Primary school children from three Ugandan schools were invited to submit special tea spoon designs that helped to convey the positive outcomes of a project that ChildHope is delivering in conjunction with the African Network for Prevention and Protection against Child Abuse and Neglect (ANPPCAN).
The Ugandan Schools' Project ensures vulnerable children can attend and stay in school and receive the education they deserve, as well as, focusing on reducing violence in schools, homes and communities which can often lead to a life on the streets.The numerous entries contained various powerful messages, each emphasising what the project means to the children themselves. Three designs were shortlisted as competition finalists:
- 'Seeds of Hope' by FO aged 14
- 'Brighter Futures' by JA aged 11
- 'Education is Key' by RS aged 10
The overall winner will see their entry turned into an actual teaspoon which Arthur Price will manufacture.
Simon Price, Chief Executive of Arthur Price discusses his involvement; "The design a spoon competition is an example of how, as a company, we've been able to support the valuable work that ChildHope carries out supporting street children around the globe. It's a practical and innovative contribution that I hope will capture people's hearts and raise important funds so that programmes such as the Ugandan Schools' Project can continue. There is so much we take for granted in the UK. Safety in schools and at home is something which every child deserves; the hopeful and forward thinking messages we've seen from the children exemplify the importance and strength of the projects ChildHope delivers."
The limited edition charity spoons will be available from the New Year, all funds raised will go directly to ChildHope.
