CHILDREN across Swansea are being challenged to grow the fattest sunflower face this summer.

Youngsters are invited to participate in the growing competition organised by national charity bibic, which helps children and young people with conditions affecting their social, communication and learning abilities.

The challenge is for children aged up to 16-years-old and is part of the Smile Campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the charity's Sponsor a UK Child initiative.

Geoff Cummins, chief executive for bibic, said: "We have joined forces with online garden centre www.potterandrest.co.uk and the company has kindly donated 100 packets of the special sunflower seeds for any greenfingered children who would like to take part.

"We know that many schools have gardening clubs and we would love it if they could get involved too. As well as entering our competition they could have their own in-house one too."

The competition is also a fundraiser for bibic through a £1 donation, which people will be asked to make when they order their seeds.

Bibic helps children and young people aged from six months to 18-years-old with conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy, Down's syndrome and brain injury.

All entries must be submitted via email before midnight on September 30, 2014 to hello@potterandrest.co.uk
