Could you foster?

Please see below information received from Veg Power:
As part of their ongoing mission to encourage the UK to eat more veg, they would like to make it easier for parents and carers to add more veg to children's lunchboxes. Recent research from Leeds University found that only one in five children had any vegetables or salad in their packed lunch.
To support parents and to make this task as simple as possible, they have developed a ’60 Second Lunchbox Hacks’ that features easy-to-implement ideas.

We have an opportunity we think your pupils may enjoy.
Over the May Bank holiday weekend there will be a special installation in Cremorne Gardens, called ‘The Sprites of Spring’. I don’t want to give too much away and spoil the excitement, but one of the figures will be very BIG and very, very lovely. She will be surrounded by lots of quirky, fun sprites. We hope the installation will help welcome in a much-needed Spring after this difficult winter.
We are running a competition to name two of the sprites. This is a free competition and there will be a small prize for each winner.
There are two age categories for the competition: 4 – 7 and 8 – 10. The photographs attached show the two sprites we would like the children to. The brightly coloured one playing a musical instrument is for the 8-10-year-olds and the other one (blue) is for the younger age group.
Please ask any pupils entering to have their entries emailed to sprites@fizzgigs by Tuesday 27th April 6p.m. to include the following information:
Name of child:
Age group: (either 4-7 or 8-10)
Name of sprite:
Parent/guardian permission given:
Contact details (phone number preferably – or email address):
We will notify the two winners on Thursday 29th April. They will be invited (with parents, of course!) to the unveiling ceremony where they will be presented with their prizes by a local artist and have photographs taken. Social distancing will be maintained, naturally.
The unveiling ceremony will be at the Bandstand in Cremorne Gardens (near the Eglantyne Jebb installation/garden) at 2p.m. on Saturday 1st May. Might you also let your community know that there will be live music as well at this time. The installations will be there for public enjoyment from that time and from 10a.m. to 5p.m. on the Sunday and Monday. There will be live music on Sunday and Monday at 2p.m. as well. Might you include any or all of this in your weekly newsletter to parents?
Thank you for taking the time to read this email. We hope very much that you and your pupils will be interested in both the installation and the competition!
Best wishes –
