Could you design a new superhero whose mission is to go about spreading kindness, friendship and forgiveness? Guildford Cathedral are looking for a ‘Superhero for Peace’ to give this message to their visitors during the month of March as they host the Knife Angel at the Cathedral.

This huge angel structure reminds us that being kind and caring will help all of us to live peacefully together; the winning designs will be displayed in the Cathedral for the whole month of March to highlight this important message. If you’ve got a great idea for their new Superhero for Peace, enter their competition using the entry form on their website.
