Havering children produce calendar of art for charity

CREATIVE schoolchildren’s artwork has been made into a calendar to raise money for charity.

The children from 12 winning schools penned their designs for The Liberty Art Competition which was themed ‘Inspiration in Havering, Past, Present and Future’.

It was run by the shopping centre in conjunction with their sponsorship of the Queen’s Theatre Community Play “Down the River and Up the Road” which was based on historical events through to the present day in Havering.

All primary schools were invited to enter to recognise young artistic talent across Havering.

All entries were displayed at The Liberty Shopping Centre throughout the Summer.

The winning primary schools include Nelmes, Harold Court, Hylands, Brookside, Hilldene, Whybridge, Langtons, Scargill, Rainham Village, Branfil and Parklands who’s artwork will appear in the calendar.

The calendar is now on sale at the Calendar Club stand near the customer service desk in The Liberty and all proceeds will go to The Liberty Shopping Centre’s two charities of the year Havering St Francis Hospice and Essex Macmillan Cancer Support.
