Happy Christmas means a new home for Henry

Schoolchildren across Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire have risen to the Henry Adams Christmas challenge 2019!

We joined 19 primary schools at their assemblies earlier this term, where we set all the children the challenge of designing and decorating a new home for Henry, our friendly four legged friend.

Dee Tickner, community liaison officer, explains, “We asked the children to imagine that Henry’s home in the garden had fallen apart after the wet and stormy weather.

“Luckily he was inside the office at the time but he’s very sad about his kennel. After all, we all know how important a home is. So Henry needs the children to come up with an inspired design for his new home.”

Managers from our local branches then returned to judge the winners in each year group and the overall winner in each school was awarded a Classic Lego Box ‘windows of opportunity’ set to encourage their design & build skills.

“It’s amazing to see the children’s imaginations and creativity in full flow. We have lots of promising young architects and designers in the next generation and who knows, they could be designing houses which become real homes for pets - or even people - one day!”

Thank you to everyone who took part, we hope you enjoyed the ‘Home for Henry’ challenge as much as we did.

And from all of us at Henry Adams - and of course, Henry the dog - have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
