Walney School girl Eleanor’s poster in district final

ASK most people for their most fervent wish and there is a fair chance the majority would answer world peace.

But as nice a sentiment as that is, only a select few people genuinely have an opportunity to influence world affairs.

Eleanor Harvey – a year nine student at Walney School – is gradually getting closer than most to doing just that.

She is the first student within the Furness Lions Club’s catchment area to make it into the district final of a peace poster competition.

The worldwide competition has been running for 25 years and in March she will compete against 12 others in the UK and Ireland final. Should she succeed there then an international final and lucrative bursary courtesy of Lions International awaits.

The theme of this year’s event, which is only open to children aged between 11 and 13, was ‘imagine peace’ and Furness Lions Club president Ted Rockley said Eleanor’s entry was a stand-out.
