Please Mister Postman, look and see…

The Royal Mail Heroes competition recently invited all schools to submit designs for a series of stamps highlighting the dedication, commitment, resilience and bravery shown by many over the past months.

They wanted young designers across the United Kingdom to think about who their hero or heroes are, and to then design a stamp in their honour.

Suganya Reddy is a Consultant Microbiologist and Microbiologist lead here at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust.

Daughter Saanvi in year 8 sent this entry into the competition

Saanvi’s hero is our staff. 

It’s her own creativity - NHS staff, the virus, the globe, rainbow of hope, super heroes (Superman symbol) and a blue heart (colour of NHS).

A special panel of judges will pick the winning designs. The final eight stamps will be sent to Her Majesty The Queen before they can be printed and issued.

Her proud mum said:

“Guess the picture says a lot of what we all have been through and I am so proud that she considers us as Heroes.”

For more than 50 years Royal Mail’s Special Stamp programme has commemorated British history and achievement. Stamps have also been issued to honour the achievements of many British people. Often, the people who appear on stamps are already famous. They include scientists and explorers, writers, artists, musicians, athletes, and Prime Ministers.

Saanvi should hear by the end of September - by post

It might even be by Royal Command.

If she is successful you will all hear, by er… email.
