‘Write Now’ wins WV competition

Throughout Term Three last year, Warwick Volunteers ran a uni-wide Project Design competition asking participants to design a project that would benefit the local community.

With a prize of £1,000 to help the winner implement his project, it provided a great opportunity to help others less fortunate.

After a gruelling selection process, the winner was announced as French and Italian Studies student, David Less, who designed ‘Write Now’ which aims to give adults with learning disabilities opportunities to work together in a professional environment to produce a news letter for their community. One of the key benefits of the project is that these adults can gain valuable experience and skills in the process, which would not have been available to them otherwise.

It was a close race between David Less and Joshua Bridges, who came second with his project to bring drama productions to local homes for people with Alzheimer’s Disease and third place was awarded to Zeenat Islam who proposed the development of a support network for South Asian women.

Deciding winners however, was no easy feat, with Warwick Volunteers manager Peter Rose impressed by the standard of all the entries being so high. He said, “The response to the competition was truly inspiring. The quality of the project proposals was outstanding, with a diverse range of exciting project ideas.”
