Wellbeing Challenge 2020 winners
June 18 2020
Now in its third year, the Charlie Waller Trust Wellbeing Challenge encourages young people to think positively about their mental health. It’s based around the NHS ‘Five steps to mental wellbeing’, with the children completing at least one wellbeing activity for each step and documenting it by sending us a photo. Normally run for schools, we adapted this year’s challenge for parents and carers to use at home by sending out activity packs full of ideas and activities for their children to complete.
With lockdown meaning families needing to keep children occupied at home, we think the challenge really struck a chord. There were 81 entries and the feedback from parents has been fantastic. One said:
This challenge has been brilliant. It has truly helped my daughter’s anxiety through these strange times and she is more relaxed and happy. Although the challenge has come to an end, we will continue with it in our daily life.
It certainly inspired some wonderful creativity and imagination, with children making origami flowers to give to neighbours, putting together their family tree and completing scavenger hunts, to name but a few.
In the primary-age category, the winning entry came from siblings Annabel and Edward Mansfield, while Keira Bullivant won the secondary-age category. Creative events company Sharky & George kindly donated two of its amazing activity packs as prizes for the winners, while the 12 runners-up received a book from Sharky & George or a Boden T-shirt.
Whether taking place at home or at school, we’re already looking forward to many more children taking part in Charlie Waller Trust’s Wellbeing Challenge 2021.
