BFBS launches ‘Forces Voices’ creativity competition to get families to share their ‘stay home’ creative masterpieces and be in with the chance of winning £500 worth of Amazon vouchers.

During this difficult time, we know that many of you are getting creative at home to keep your spirits up or children entertained - but you may feel that all your hard efforts are going to waste as these masterpieces are stored in a box or on your hard drive. 

At BFBS we want to encourage people to share their lockdown creations through ‘Forces Voices’, a creativity competition that allows adults and children to either get creative from scratch or present pieces they’ve already made and want to share with the world.
