ARTWORK by four youngsters from a Holme Valley school will feature in a charity calendar.

Eight-year-olds Ryan Deane, William Sharp, Faye Atkins and Jayden Dixon, all of Wooldale Junior School, were among the winners in a children’s charity calendar competition run by Leeds law firm Walker Morris.

Runners-up in the 18th annual competition included Wooldale pupils Jack Harrison, Shona Valentine, Megan Meeres-Brook, Sean Keddie, Josh Peace and Charlotte Longton and Hannah Edwards, of Battyeford Primary School, Mirfield.

Thirteen winning pictures, including one for the front cover of the calendar, were chosen by the judges, who included Holmfirth artist Ashley Jackson.

Each of the winners was presented with a hamper full of artists’ materials worth £50 plus a cheque for their school. The 26 runners-up also received a prize each.

The contest attracted more than 1,700 entries from 100 schools across Yorkshire and the North East.

Proceeds from the sale of the calendars will go to Martin House Children’s Hospice at Wetherby.

Since the competition was launched, Walker Morris has raised more than £55,000 for the hospice.

Calendars are now on sale at £4.50 each. Contact or phone 0113 2832500.
