Beaphar UK has announced the UK winner of their recent global competition #DrawMeYourFamily.
George Rocke, age 6, from Hereford has been chosen as the winner, and will receive the fantastic prize of a family adventure break worth £1000.
Lucy Rocke said: “George’s two favourite things in life are his pets and drawing. George has been diagnosed with ADHD and has trouble expressing his feelings, and we have found he can do this through his love of art and drawing.
“When George is having a bad day or a mad moment we can find him sat with his cat upstairs or with the dogs. His connection with animals is such a beautiful thing to be around. George has a soft beautiful soul. Winning means so much to George, he can be down on himself a lot, and this really has lifted his spirits and shows him how brilliant he is. We, the family, are all so very proud.”
Dr Sue Huggett, UK Business Manager, Beaphar UK, said: “We were so impressed by all the entrants to our #DrawMeYourFamily competition, and would like to thank all our retailers for getting behind it. The competition has really helped strengthen the relationship Beaphar has with our consumers, and we are confident our trade customers will see this in their sales too.
“George’s picture was one that stood out, and having learnt a little more about his family we are thrilled to have been able to give them a such an amazing prize. It is clear from all the entries we received that children really do view their pets as part of the family.
Dr Huggett concluded: “In fact, two particular entrants put so much effort and imagination into creating their pictures of their families that we decided to send them both a bundle of Beaphar goodies for their pets.”
Beaphar’s #DrawMeYourFamily competition followed on from their recent brand video, ‘Draw me your family: The Beaphar Social Experiment’, which proved that children view their pets as part of the family, while parents often forget them. The video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/5avkySyX0uc
