A fabulous opportunity for our students to design a logo for the Friends of the Friarage Hospital

05 February 2021  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in:

The Friends of The Friarage Hospital are updating their branding and are inviting students from local primary and secondary schools to put forward their designs for a new logo. As our local hospital, we are privileged that the Friarage serves our community so well and we hope many of our students will enter the competition to support the Friends of the Friarage in their tremendous work.  The charity donates valuable time and fundraises for medical support, as well as running the shop in the hospital. In recent years they have helped to raise thousands of pounds for specialist eye equipment, an MRI scanner, ultrasound technology and other vital equipment and much more.

The closing date is not until FRIDAY 19TH FEBRUARY,  so this would make a great half-term project. Make sure your logo is impactful, strong and sums up the charity’s work to stand a chance of the trustees of the charity selecting a shortlist of ten of their favourite designs.  The students’ artwork will then be used to brief a designer to create the final design. Each of the ten students will be rewarded with a £10 book voucher.

To stand a chance of your design inspiring the charity’s new branding please complete the application form HERE and email with a scan of the artwork of your logo to:  by 19th February.

As a school and college, we are delighted that some of our students have already supported the Friends of the Friarage in the development of their communications activity and engagement with the local community.  Three of our Year 12 students recently took part in a focus group which, along with other groups, identified a need for them to modernise and develop their brand. Part of the outcome of the research was the need to modernise and develop their brand. You can find out more about their contribution to the research  HERE

Susan Watson, joint chair of trustees for the Friends of the Friarage said: “Working with the local community is extremely important to us. With the NHS in the spotlight right now there has never been a more valuable time for us to look at our brand and ensure we are doing everything we can to support the Friarage Hospital.

“By recreating our logo, we want to develop a stronger brand so it’s more recognisable to local residents and build stronger relationships. School pupils are the future of the charity so it’s vital we engage with this younger audience and bring them on this journey to develop our look and feel. We can’t wait to see what the children create and hope it gives them a positive and fun task during lockdown.”
