YMCA Dulverton Group have this week launched a competition to encourage local people to get creative and explain how they have felt throughout the UK Lockdown.
In an effort to help mental wellbeing, YMCA Dulverton Group are calling on local people to submit their creations depicting their lockdown experience, taking time to reflect on how they have been feeling. Communities are being encouraged to get involved and submit any piece of creative work to the YMCA where they will be entered into a competition to win a £30 gift voucher.
The competition has been split into three age categories, 0-16, 17-25 and 26+ and there will be a winner in each group.
Jonica Walkinshaw, a Director at YMCA Dulverton Group explained: “The aim of this competition is to encourage people to think about the way they have felt over the last few months during lockdown and interpret that creatively.
“Expressing thoughts and feelings creatively can help mental wellbeing and we hope that local people will have fun getting involved and will submit their creative pieces to us.”
The competition aims to inspire people into getting creative in any format, from drawing to painting, poems to songs, there is no restriction on submissions.
