Are you aged between 4-16 years? If so, Lingen Davies Cancer Fund needs your help…

Get creative for your chance to win an iPad or an Amazon voucher!

Lingen Davies, an independent charity supporting cancer patients in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales (and one of our longstanding clients!), need your help in designing an official charity mascot. We’re encouraging children aged 4-16 years to get creative and enter this fantastic competition!

Proudly sponsored by Reech

We’ve worked alongside the team at Lingen Davies for over five years, providing our expert branding, content and website services, so we’re super excited to be involved and help the charity in its quest to find its first-ever mascot.

As the official competition sponsor, we are supplying the prizes for all winners and will formally invite the overall competition winner to our office to meet a member of our Design team. Here, the winner will see their vision come to life as we finalise the official artwork for the mascot. We want you to get your creative wand out and create a colourful piece of artwork that will help bring Lingen Davies to life!

“This is a fantastic opportunity for children in the local community to create a lasting legacy for Lingen Davies! As a parent myself, I’m incredibly excited to get behind the search for the charity’s first-ever mascot, and I encourage families across Shropshire to get creative and submit their designs!”

Dena Evans, Creative Director at Reech

What prizes are up for grabs?

There will be one overall winner whose design will become our physical mascot – however, entries will be split into three age groups and a winner will be picked from each of those.

  • The overall winner will receive a 64GB WiFi iPad in Space Grey! To commemorate the competition, the iPad will be personalised with the following engraving: “Winner of the Lingen Davies Mascot Competition”.
  • Two runner-ups will receive a £25 Amazon voucher.

The winner and runner-ups will be invited to our office on Shrewsbury Business Park for a press photograph with representatives of Reech and Lingen Davies. The overall competition winner will then sit with a member of our Design team to bring their concept to life!

Competition rules

There will be one overall winner and three runners-up. The design of the overall winner will become the physical mascot for Lingen Davies.

All entries, however, will be split into three age groups (4-8 years, 9-12 years and 13-16 years) and a winner will be picked from each category.

  • A hand-drawn picture, showing what you think the Lingen Davies mascot should look like. Don’t forget that the winning mascot design will be made into a costume worn by a single person!
  • The Lingen Davies logo and their blue and yellow colours in the design

When submitting your design, please include a sentence describing your design and why you think it’s right for Lingen Davies!
