Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice and Hitchin-based artist Sarah Graham, who appeared as a guest judge on CBBC's 'Britain's Best Young Artist', revealed the winners of a local art competition who added an additional splash of colour to St Neot's PaintRush.

15-year-old Charlotte from Ernulf Academy, St Neots, eight-year-old Mia from Fairfield Park Lower School, Stotfold, and seven year old Ethan from Fairfield Park Lower School, Stotfold, had their motivational messages on proud display to greet hundreds of participants at the 5km Paint Rush on June 26.

Their colourful creations have also been framed and displayed at the Bedfordshire-based hospice for all patients, visitors, volunteers and staff to enjoy.

She said “I was really impressed with all the entries, it was very difficult to choose but there were some outstanding pieces. I’m thrilled the winners will be displayed in the hospice for the staff, families and patients to enjoy.”
