We wanted to pass on this message on behalf behalf of United Utilities about a primary school competition:

Subject: Primary school Drawing competition – win £100 Amazon voucher each for school and student

I’m contacting you on behalf of United Utilities as we are currently running a competition for primary school students in Blackpool and the Fylde. It’s free to enter and one of your students could win a £100 Amazon voucher for themselves and a £100 Amazon voucher for the school.

The competition is part of our Stop the Block campaign, which aims to educate and encourage local people to only flush the right things down the loo and pour the correct things down the sink. Flushing and pouring the wrong things could lead to devastating damage to people’s homes, schools, local community and our beautiful beaches.

We would love to get your students involved in our campaign as we are keen to educate the next generation on this issue. We have devised a competition for primary school children to design a poster of Blackpool’s Blockage Beater Superhero or Fylde’s Fatberg Fighter which can be done either at home or at school, to help spread this very important message to the local community.

The winner of the competition will receive £100 Amazon voucher along with the opportunity of having their poster displayed in your local area.  Details of the competition can be found in the attached document: www.unitedutilities.com/blackpoolcompetition. The closing date is 13th August.

To help kick-start the creative flow of ideas on why we need to think about what we flush down the loo, here is a link to a pre-recorded session for KS2 children which has been provided by United Utilities’ education service provider Kingfisher Education. The pre-recorded sessions are approximately 15 minutes long and are completely FREE. More details about the education service can be found here.

Good luck to your students!
