Schoolchildren in St Albans who took part in a sunflower competition for a national charity are being urged this month to send in their entries. 

Anyone who took part in the growing competition can submit their entries before September 30 to be in with a chance of winning. 

Bibic helps children and young people with conditions affecting their social, communication and learning abilities.

Earlier this year it teamed up with an online garden centre and asked children aged up to 16-years-old to enter a competition to grow the sunflower with the fattest face. 

There are two titles to be won - Regional Winner and National Winner. The five regional winners will each receive a £10 voucher and a certificate.

All entries must be submitted via email before midnight on September 30 to with the entry form and a photo of the sunflower attached to the email.
