Em Swallow of Something Lovely, in Libra Court, said she needed to ‘do something positive’ after the closure on Friday, March 20, caused a ‘roller-coaster of emotions’.

The competition is open to adults and children, with several different age groups for entrants under 18.

A PDF document with a template for the mug is available to download and print from the Something Lovely website.

Entrants should draw their design on the template and send it in by post or email.
