As you may remember, last summer we launched a poetry competition inspired by the joyful poems from Rachel’s son, Alfred. His poems brought smiles to many faces during the uncertain and difficult times of last year.
These times were a particular challenge for Alfred who received a diagnosis of autism in early 2020 and writing poetry served as a terrific outlet for his creativity.
Alfred’s resilience and imagination shines through his poetry so we wanted to share it again with you all in celebration of World Poetry Day on Sunday 21st March.
We also had some truly wonderful entries from all of you that we just had to reshare. Have a read of last year’s winning entry by Gabriel, age 8 below as inspired by our Sailboat design from the SS20 Collection.
Perhaps these will inspire you and your family to get creative this World Poetry Day and try your hand at writing your very own poem!
This weekend only, in aid of The National Autistic Society, we’ll be donating £1 for every order placed.
Place an order today and help raise money for this incredible charity and one that is very close to our hearts.
