We were unable to hold our usual “Northamptonshire Anti-Bullying Songwriting Competition” this year, but we have recorded lots of Anti-Bullying songs over the past few months – and also received recordings from lots of young people keen to continue sharing the message of the competition. So we decided to celebrate this by choosing one song as our official winner:

“Let Me Go” was written by an amazing young pianist, singer and songwriter, Isabella from Abington Vale Primary School, Northampton. She recorded the song at The Stables, with three excellent singers Lily, Lucy and Olivia.

A huge “Thank You” to everyone who sent in entries – and to parents and teachers who have supported the children and young people. We apologise to anyone who would have liked to have taken part this year.

…but please watch this space for news of a new competition!
