Competition time! Do you or someone you know have an encouraging story you would like to share about Carr Gomm? Then send it our way and you could be in with a chance of winning up to £50 worth of vouchers and your work featured in our next newspaper!

We would love to hear about the difference Carr Gomm's support has made in your, or someone you know's life; be it in your day-to-day living, in planning for your future, or in supporting you to realise your hopes and dreams. 

Telling a story doesn't have to be in writing: from paintings to cartoons, videos to poems, or sculptures to writing - whatever the format, we would love you to share.

Get creative and use your imagination!

How to get involved

  1. Capture your story: use any medium you would like to tell your story - this could be painting or drawing, creating a video or animation, writing a story or poem or even a song, creating a sculpture, using digital art or photographs...the possibilities are endless.
  2. Make sure it's real: we’re looking for FACTUAL stories, not fiction - your story should be a real-life example of how Carr Gomm's support has made a difference in your life.
  3. Send us your creation: once you have created a story it will need to be photographed, scanned in or sent to us digitally in some way. All entries should be emailed to [email protected]

Anyone can enter - whether you are supported by Carr Gomm, work with us, or are friends/family of someone we support - as long as you have a personal story to share about your experience with Carr Gomm. You could even collaborate with others involved in your story! 

Closing date for entries is 30th November 2019

After the closing date, we will select a winning entry, which will receive a £50 gift voucher and be featured in our Winter 2019/20 Newspaper. 

The winning entry and runners up will also be featured on our website and social media channels. 

We look forward to receiving your entries. Good luck!
