Get your 2018 calendar – Designed by the children of Hull!

Proud Hullensians can snap up some original artwork which celebrates their home city.

Leeds Building Society challenged local school children to create a design which showed what they love about Hull and the winning drawings, paintings and collages have been turned into a charity calendar.

The 2018 calendar is raising funds for Hull and East Yorkshire Children’s University.

The winners, who range in age from four to 11, collected their prizes at a VIP viewing at Hull Paragon railway station, managed by train company TransPennine Express, where their designs are gracing the concourse over the coming weeks.

“The calendar has landmarks including the Humber Bridge and the Maritime Museum, and it was difficult to pick the winners from so many lovely pictures,” said Denise Woodall, the manager of Leeds Building Society’s Hull branch.

“We’re thrilled TransPennine Express offered to display the artwork at Hull Paragon station so it can be seen and enjoyed by thousands of people every day.

”We hope they’ll pop round to our branch in Paragon Street and buy a calendar to take home and brighten up their kitchen, hall or office.”

David Hatfield, Station Manager at Hull for TransPennine Express, commented: “We are thrilled that the station is playing host to these wonderful works of art created by our young people.

“I would encourage people to come along to the station and see the colourful designs for themselves.”

Rose James, Partnership Manager of Hull and East Yorkshire Children’s University, explained where the funds raised from the calendar would be used.

She said: “Leeds Building Society in Hull is raising money for our charity so that a group of children can visit London for a day that they will never forget. We are extremely grateful to them for fundraising for us and we think the calendars look fantastic!”

The calendar costs £5.99 and is on sale now from Leeds Building Society, 78 Paragon Street, Hull HU1 3PW. All proceeds go to charity.
