Earth Day Competition Success

Congratulations to Catherine, Anna, Declan and Karen for being selected as winners in The Herts Advertiser Earth Day Competition, which is linked to the St Albans Rainbow Trails initiative that was set up last month by Preet Cox in a bid to spread positivity across the district during the lockdown.

More than 2000 people have joined the Rainbow Trails initiative, including several of our Skyswood families. It encourages themed trails of artwork in house windows, with previous topics including rainbows, sunshine and Easter.

Preet explained: “In the spirit of working together towards a common theme, the weekly trails send out a message to the community about coming together as one and supporting and working together in solidarity. The creative trails are supporting mental health and I’m also aiming to support local groups and charities with fundraising and raising awareness for their causes through as many weekly creative trails as possible.

The latest concept was based around the international Earth Day initiative, which demonstrated support for environmental protection. They received a wide range of entries that featured several different creative mediums, including Earth cookies, paintings, art mobiles, hand printings, crochet Earth creations, and chalk drawings, all of which have been amazing.

As St Albans Rainbows continues to grow, Preet is aiming to engage with and support many more causes and charities through their weekly themes and initiatives whilst also spreading the message of unity, kindness and positivity as we go along.

Preet will be continuing to raise more money for charitable causes through the group. Search Facebook for St Albans Rainbow Trails to join and find out more.
