Please note this competition is *UK only*
If you feel passionate about the
Help for Heroes campaign here’s your chance to wax poetic - and give our
soldiers a boost.
Publishers United Press
are running a competition to find the best Help for Heroes poem and Primark are giving £250 in vouchers to the winner.
Entrants are asked to donate at least a pound a poem and everything will go to Help for Heroes.
“Cheques must be made out to Help for Heroes and you can donate as much as you like
and enter as many poems as you like,” said Managing Director of United Press, Peter
Quinn, who will judge the competition.
“We’re looking for poems related to
Help for Heroes. It could be a poem about an individual or it could be a
poem with a message. The minimum donation we’re asking for is a
pound, but I think people feel so passionate about this subject that
many donations will be much more and many people will send several poems.”
Entries are only accepted by post, accompanied by a cheque made out to Help for
Heroes. A representative from Help for Heroes will be at the presentation to give
the winner their prize, and the winner will have the honour of handing over the
donations to Help for Heroes.
The winner will also have their poem published in a general collection of modern
poetry and will receive a free copy of the book.
Post your entries to United Press, Admail 3735, London, EC1B 1JB
by the closing date of November 11th 2011. You do not need an entry
form but make sure you put Help For Heroes at the top of your entry.
