We have been blown away by the number of entries to our Sumer Letter Writing Competition but even more blown away by the thoughtfulness, creativity and joy of the letters.

Thank you to everyone who entered (and a special thank you to the students of Parrs Wood High School who wrote 129 summer letters to brighten the days of those living with cancer).

We're delighted to announce our winner is Zoe McAvoy. You can read her letter below.

Judge Liz Maguire described Zoe's letter:

Her revisions in the sunshine and "plinky plonky" ice cream man. Enjoying the sunshine and the moments and time moving too fast...

We'd also like to congratulate Alix, Kathryn, Alan, Tatjana and Jackie who were shortlisted. Read Liz's comments on their letters are here.

Zoe wins the beautiful hardback book - All The Love In The World - and a place on Letters Connect August workshop
