This is our final reminder to submit your entries for our amazing CoLrIn BOOK competition, to win £250 towards entry to the conference of your choice in 2020.
Visitors to the VH Bio stand at BSHI in 2019 were given a Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics-themed colouring book. The aim of the book was not just to have a bit of fun: it was also to help promote mental wellbeing,
VH Bio has a charity partnership with the If U Care Share Foundation, an independent charity based in the North East of England that promotes emotional well-being in young people and those affected by suicide. See www.ifucareshare.co.uk for more information.
Studies have suggested that colouring books can benefit adults’ mental health, potentially reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety. We wanted people to take some time to colour in some, or all, of our colouring book, relax and enter our competition!
However, the December 31st deadline is approaching fast so this is our final call for entries. Entering is easy: just colour in a page from our colouring book and then take a picture of your effort: send it to us either via email, or via our Twitter feed.
We’ll pick the best entry and be in touch early in the new year to arrange your £250 prize.
If you didn’t receive a colouring book, let us know and we can send you an electronic version of some of the designs.
Alternatively, you can download a version of the colouring book here. (Opens a PDF in a new tab; 8.7mb in size – don’t click the link unless you’re on WiFi!).
