A competition is now open for young people to design a mug that celebrates the NHS. The winning mugs will then be produced by Royal Crown Derby and they aim to make and sell 26,299 mugs, representing and celebrating every day that the NHS has been making our lives better since its formation on 5 July 1948 to its 72nd anniversary in 2020.
Royal Crown Derby are donating all profits to NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent appeal. In addition, they hope that this campaign will give young people an engaging challenge, showcase creativity and encourage education about the NHS. Personally, I also think this is a great way to keep children entertained during lockdown.
The two prize winners (from the below 12 and 12-18 age groups) will take a tour of the Palace of Westminster and will be presented with the first mug off the production line together with their framed artwork. The winners will also visit the V&A where their mugs will be exhibited.
