Home-Start Bridgwater Area is an independent, small charity, which opened in January 2011, to help local families with their pre-school children when they are facing particular difficulty or family struggles, by giving support and advice to families to help them gain confidence to cope for themselves.
The charity is having a Short Story competition, which will be judged by award winning novelist Patricia Ferguson. The first prize winner will receive £500, second prize will be £200 and third prize £100. It costs only £7 to submit your short story and all the fees from entrants will go towards the charity's work.
