The challenge, which closes on May 14 and will have five prizes awarded by age group, asks children to create rainbows, which will be 
sent to the local nursing home and people who are self-isolating.

Mr Stewart said: “The rainbow has been taken up, with inspiring effect, in the current Covid-19 crisis as a sign of love and hope and 
as a way of thanking all our NHS and frontline keyworkers.”

Ian Mackie, county and district councillor for the town, said: “In this period of global pandemic we feel it has been a great strength for both communities to know that they are thinking and caring about each other.”

Please send entries with 
name, age (if under 18) and email or phone to The Rev James Stewart, The Rectory, 21a South Avenue, Norwich, NR7 0EY.
