Scotmid mural competition

The Scottish SPCA is celebrating its partnership with Scotmid Co-operative with a mural competition for young people.


The competition will be a legacy piece to mark the end of the year-long charity partnership with Scotmid. The competition is aimed at young people aged 16 and under.  The theme is ‘I love animals’ and the Society is asking for designs which show how strong the bond between humans and animals can be.

The mural will be placed in the animal rescue and rehoming centre closest to where the winner/s are located. It’s open to primary and secondary school classes, organised groups and individuals.

Animal rescue and rehoming centre superintendent Sharon Comrie said, “We are delighted to announce the mural competition.  It will be fantastic to have a legacy piece to mark the Scotmid partnership.

“The relationship with Scotmid has been incredible for us.  At the halfway point in February, they had raised an incredible £141,000. In terms of our pioneering education programme, this funding equates to us being able to reach over 170,000 school pupils.

“We are looking for primary schools, secondary schools, organised groups such as scout groups and girl guides or individuals!  The only criteria is you have to be 16 years or younger.

“The theme is ‘I love animals’ so we hope the contest will appeal to those who love animals and have a creative flair. 

“The winner will get £250 Scotmid vouchers to spend in store, a VIP tour of one of our centres and some Scottish SPCA goodies thrown in.

“The closing date for entries is 31 July and entrants can email their designs to and also post their entries to Ailsa Alcock, Scottish SPCA, Kingseat Road, Halbeath, Dunfermline, KY11 8RY.  We look forward to receiving them soon.”

Scotmid chief executive John Brodie said: “We’re really excited about seeing the overall winning effort brought to life and the creation of a lasting reminder of our memorable charity partnership with the Scottish SPCA.

“The funds we raise will go towards educating thousands of schoolchildren across Scotland about the importance of animal welfare which should also create a fantastic legacy.”

The winner will be revealed on 9 August 2019 and will then be displayed in the closest centre to where the winner/s are located.  It will also be shared on the Scottish SPCA’s website and social media.
