Estate residents are being given a summer challenge to win £100. East Hull-based charity, EMS Yorkshire, is calling on households to improve their front gardens during the month of August to be in with a chance of the prize. One households enter, the transformation will be monitored by the company’s staff before work starts and afterwards.
The company is offering the cash bounty in conjunction with Gateway, Hull’s housing renewal pathfinder. EMS Chief Executive Jan Boyd says: “It’s an exciting challenge for the summer holidays. The majority of households have front gardens and the space to be creative. The gardens entered will be photographed before the householder starts work and then afterwards to show the difference. We’ll be judging during the first week in September.”
The winner will receive £100 in Morrisons’ vouchers at a ceremony in October 2010 at the Freedom Centre, Preston Road Village Centre. For details and application forms, contact Andy Rees on 01482 709810 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
