The Swaffham Rotary Club have presented a prize to the talented winner of their Schools Art Competition.

Beatrice Bowen, a pupil at the Nicholas Hammond Academy, Swaffham, was presented with her winner’s award by the president of the Swaffham Rotary Club, Bill Muir.

The group ran the competition as part of their annual visual arts festival, which concluded with an exhibition and sale of works of art and craft on the weekend of October 28 - 29.

The festival was sponsored by Abel Homes, and raised over £6,000 for the Rotary’s charitable funds.

The money raised will be used to benefit local, national and international causes.

Mr Muir said: “We were delighted to work with local schools to run the art competition.

“We congratulate Beatrice on her win and thank the other entrants who competed.

“I should also thank anyone who supported the visual arts festival in any way.”
