GREEN fingered children are being challenged to grow the “fattest sunflower face” by a national charity.

The competition has been organised by bibic, which helps children and young people with conditions affecting their social, communication and learning abilities.

Geoff Cummins, Chief Executive for bibic, explained: “As part of our Smile Campaign, which aims to raise awareness of our Sponsor a UK Child initiative, we are running a competition for children aged up to 16-years-old to grow one of the smiliest plants around.”

The competition will also raise money for the chairty. For more information visit
