BUDDING artists throughout Hampshire can put their scribbles to good use by getting involved in a doodle competition to raise money for national charity Epilepsy Action.

Doodles may be shapes, patterns, drawings or scribbles.

There is a suggested donation of £1 with each doodle entry and there are three age categories – seven years and under, 8-16 year-olds and 17 years and over.

The winning doodle drawing will win up to £150 worth of arts and crafts vouchers and a 3D stuffed figure which is made to look exactly like their doodle drawing, and there is an additional competition for schools and colleges.

Individual entries should sent in by March 8 and drawn on an A5 piece of card and include name, age, telephone number. To enter visit nationaldoodleday.org.uk
