A 12-year-old Le Rocquier student was last night crowned the winner of a competition to design a logo for a newly formed charity which was set up in memory of a young Islander who died of cancer last year.
Millie Mae Foley’s bright design featuring a smiling sun was awarded the top prize, and her logo will now be used for the Oscar Maclean Foundation.
The foundation, which aims to raise money to help improve the lives of sick Island children, was set up earlier this year in memory of Oscar, the eldest son of Economic Development Minister Alan Maclean and his wife Nara. Oscar lost his fight against brain cancer last year.
Hundreds of entries to design the logo were received, which were were then whittled down to a shortlist of 14. The shortlisted schoolchildren and their parents gathered to meet Jersey-born former Chelsea and England footballer Graeme Le Saux at Banjo on Thursday night, where they found out who the winners were.
