2020 is the 20th birthday of Womens Aid Orkney.
Women’s Aid Orkney are planning a series of events to mark their 20th birthday, to say thank you to supporters and continue to raise awareness of the service.
The service has grown year on year and the refuge opened in 2005.
Service Users and staff have come and gone but the issue remains the same, we have had many tears and many smiles, as women and children take the path to recovery. Although the subject is tough, we have reasons to celebrate our being here to help and support those who need us.
Winning entries will be made into a calendar to be sold next year, the competition is open to everyone and the subject is “What makes me happy”, it can be a photo, picture, collage, poem, quote whatever you feel express’s the subject. Along with having their winning design incorporated into the calendar there will be a small prize for each winner
There will be 3 categories –
- Adults 18 years plus
- Young People 11- 18 years
- Children 11 years and under
There are plans to hold an exhibition of all the entries in the new year.
The competition runs until 31st December 2019 and entries can be via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via post/ in person to WAO, c/o 39a Victoria Street, Kirkwall, KW15 1DN.
All entries need to have the entrants name, contact telephone number and date of birth on them for judging purposes.
