The competition was organised by Global Sleaford (a community group of friends raising local awareness of the global impacts of Climate Change) and supported by NKDC, Christian Aid and Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant.
Year 5 pupils wrote letters to their legal representatives, Leader of the Council, Councillor Richard Wright, and local MP, Dr Caroline Johnson, raising their concerns about the effects of climate change on people in underdeveloped countries and the expected impacts on them in the future and asking them to do all they can to ensure a safe and prosperous future of all.
79 fantastic letters were received and 20 shortlisted to be read at the event. NKDC provided the prizes of book tokens and fun books on climate change. Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant loaned the schools their educational resource boxes to support the teaching of the children about the issues and some of the solutions.
