Photolink Support Oscar MacLean Foundation

School children in Jersey were invited to design a logo for a new charitable foundation set up in memory of a nine-year-old boy who died of a brain tumour.

The Oscar MacLean Foundation was set up after Oscar tragically lost his fight against an aggressive type of brain cancer in October 2013.

As well as keeping Oscar’s memory alive the foundation aims to support projects that focus on improving the lives of sick children in Jersey

The competition was open to all youngsters aged 14 and under and the finalists were broken down into different age groups.

Our Creative Director John Whalley was joined by former England and Chelsea footballer Graeme Le Saux at the event and asked to announce the winning designs.

It was fantastic couple of days and John was delighted to be involved.

He said: “It was such an honour to be asked to brief the children and then to select the winning designs.

“Their work was outstanding and the outright winner definitely does justice to this fantastic foundation and the amazing people behind it.”

The winning design had to include a flash of yellow in the logo in recognition of Oscar’s bright blonde hair. It was a far from an easy decision but John and Graeme eventually decided on Millie Mae Foley’s design.

Well done to all the children who took part and we look forward to the launch of Millies design!
