Spire Manchester Hospital recently held an art competition with three local schools in Didsbury to create a colouring book for their paediatric patients.  Local children were invited to draw pictures of what makes them happy which will feature in the book designed for Spire’s young patients.

A judging panel drawn from the medical staff at Spire Manchester selected 12 winning entries from The Birches, Moor Allerton and Lancasterian schools, each of whom win Amazon vouchers. Yusra Choudhry of The Birches was declared the overall winner, securing an additional £100 prize for her school.

The winning entries will be designed into a colouring book that will be given to all children visiting Spire Manchester’s hospital for treatment. The colouring book will be launched later this year.

Anthony Blandford, Business Development Manager at Spire Manchester, said: “We were very impressed with the standard of the entries, which showed great creativity - we wish that we could put them all in the colouring book! We’re looking forward to launching the colouring book to our youngest patients, both at our current site in Whalley Range, and at our new Didsbury hospital in early 2017.”
