Heather Denny, who took up the role of arts advisor for Inspiration Trust amid the pandemic last year, said: “We love art - during the first lockdown lots of people created rainbows to post in their window as signs of hope. We want to continue this positivity through our art challenges.

“The submissions have also lifted the spirits of our teachers. They have been truly touched by the wonderful messages and kind notes from families.”
