Something to brighten your day!

Charities like ours are needed more than ever right now. Despite these very difficult circumstances, we are continuing to support our service users in the best way we can, thanks to our dedicated practitioners.

Throughout this challenging time, we find ourselves looking for positivity, distraction and fun – and so we are running an online competition to bring you just that.

We’d like you to recreate our logo depicting a sun emerging behind a cloud – our little symbol of hope. It can be created using any material you like; paints, crayons or chalk, or even bits and pieces from around the house such as cotton wool, pipe cleaners, egg boxes etc. It could even be a sculpture in the garden! Participants of any age can enter, and there is no entry fee. We would however be very grateful for donations of any kind to help us continue to support people across the East of England who need help seeing a brighter future. Please follow the link to donate

The competition closes on 24th April, and the winner (chosen by our Patron Saeed Atcha MBE DL) will have their logo design used across our social media pages for two months.

Kayleigh Drake, Events Officer says “It is such a shame we won’t be seeing our supporters at our annual fundraising events for the time being and so we set up this competition to keep connected with our fantastic community. We know how much we and our event participants look forward to our events and so we wanted to bring a bit of joy to people online instead. This competition is a little bit of fun and a reminder to you all that we’re still here doing our best for people who really need us right now. We hope we get lots of entries and I can’t wait to see your creations!”

Once you have finished your design, upload it to social media tagging Ormiston Families and use the hashtag #ormistonbrightenyourday to enter the competition OR email a picture of it to and we’ll share it on your behalf.

We continue to support our service users despite this challenging time.  Our practitioners are needed more than ever by some of our families across the east of England due to rising anxieties and worries about the future. We rely on support from across the community to continue delivering our vital work across five counties. If you would like to donate please visit
