LISA Launches 3 Skills Challenge, in conjuction with Stacey West and FPS amongst others

We live in unprecedented times with hoards of people stuck at home with little to occupy their minds.

We’re all missing football, but now isn’t a time to be morose and downbeat; too many good people are out there saving lives for us to bemoan our lack of stimulation. Besides, when those great people at LISA have come up with a great competition to keep those young people amused, there’s little time to be bored at all. We’re involved too, I’ll be putting out some tips for the writing part of the competition, but there’s something for all ages of children.

So, without further ado, here are the details of the
