A COMMUNITY-based arts group organised a competition for adults and children to design a postcard which will be sold in Worthing for charity.

Creative Waves Community Arts staged the event at the end of last month, when the two winning designs were chosen by Janice Fraser, Worthing Borough Council’s tourism officer.

Gemma Poland, age 11, won an iPod donated by Worthing’s Open Houses and a £50 voucher from Proto to use in their restaurants.

Erica Sturla was presented with a £100 voucher from Jeremy Silverthorne, to spend in the jewellers in Warwick Street.

Nadia Chalk, from Creative Waves, said: “Thank you to everyone who entered our competition to design a new postcard for Worthing. 
“There were so many fantastic designs and ideas that we decided to have two overall winners.

“Their designs will be printed as postcard with all proceeds from the sales going to Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice.

“The postcards have been printed by Proto and are on sale at Visit Worthing, next to Worthing’s Dome cinema.”

Nadia, along with Vanessa Breen, who run Creative Waves, were delighted with the response to the competition and said they very grateful to the companies who provided prizes for the main winners as well as several runner prizes.

She said: “Thanks to the Aquarena, Zoo jewellers, AMF Bowling, Worthing Theatres and Jessops.”
