A MORAY children’s charity in memory of a tot who died from cancer has launched a competition for youngsters to design a new logo.
Logan’s Fund was set up by Angela and Christopher Main, from Lossiemouth, in memory of their son, who died from neuroblastoma in June, 2009, aged just three.
The charity has raised tens of thousands of pounds for other families and charities supporting sick youngsters.
The competition is open to children of primary-school age or under.
There are only three rules which children must adhere to when designing a logo.
They must use a turtle theme, as Logan loved and was fascinated by turtles.
It must contain rainbow colours, which have become synonomous with Logan. Staff at the Jack ’n’ Jill Nursery, which Logan attended, when breaking the news of his death, asked youngsters to think of Logan every time they saw a rainbow.
Entries must include ‘Logan’s Fund’ as a part of the design.
The logo can be drawn, painted, sketched freehand, or children can source their own template for the turtle.
The winner will receive a VIP day for them and their family at Thirteen Moons, by Drummuir, where they will meet and feed the animals and enjoy lunch with a few other treats thrown in.
As designer of the logo, the winner will also be invited from time to time in the future to perform special duties as a guest of the charity.
The competition will be highlighted in Moray Council’s weekly school news bulletins in the first week back after the Easter break.
Entries can be sent to ‘Logan’s Fund’, 30 Dunbar Street, Lossiemouth IV31 6AL.
It is hoped that pre-school groups, nurseries, child-minders and others will also enter the competition.
Logan’s brother and sister, Lachlan and Elisha, think Thirteen Moons is a magical place and Angela and Chris know that Logan would have loved it as well.
The closing date for the competition is May 15.
