A YOUNGSTER has won a drawing competition to design a new logo for a stroke club.

Jessica Smith, six, from Reed First School, won the competition arranged by the Royston Speak Out Stroke Club.

They invited pupils from first schools in the Royston area to create a logo for their new bulletin, the Barn Owl, which is named after the Old Barn in Upper King Street, where the group's meetings are held.

For winning the competition, Jessica was presented with a trophy, along with a WH Smith voucher and some sweets.

The winning design, along with all the other entries, went display at Royston library this week.

Meanwhile, a volunteer at the club is appealing for help to raise cash so that he and his colleagues can take part in a parachute jump.

Ivan Titmuss hopes to undertake the jump in August, along with several other club volunteers. However, each of them must raise a minimum of £400.

He said: "We'll be donating half to the local club and half to stroke clubs nationally. To do the jump you need to have collected £400 each, which could be a problem for some of the people who want to take part."

Anyone who can help should contact Ivan on 07915 662733, or email brothergroove@yahoo.com
