Sweet success is in store for budding young artists - with the chance to see their work on the front of a chocolate selection box.

Suffolk chocolatier Hadleigh Maid is launching a charity competition.

The search is on for children aged up to 12 to design the front of a special version of the company’s 112g selection box. The best artwork will be used online and in shops from the end of March.

For every purchase, a donation will go to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), after Hadleigh Maid recently became a corporate partner of the charity.

Gavin Bowie, Hadleigh Maid marketing director, said: “We’re delighted to have been accepted by EACH as one of their fundraising partners, donating money to such a deserving cause.

Vicky Matthews, EACH Suffolk corporate fundraiser, said: “EACH is really excited to be working with such a well-respected business in the community, and the art competition marks only the start of our partnership.”

Hadleigh Maid has also set up a code – EACH – for EACH supporters to use when buying products on its website. Any customers who use it will see 10% of the total cost of their order donated to the charity.

The contest is running from February 13 to March 12. To enter, download a competition pack from the Hadleigh Maid website.
