David-John Cousins (Sales & Marketing Assistant for Farécla) commented:

“Running our first ever bonnet painting competition has been an absolute pleasure and Elliot’s eye catching bonnet has become the centrepiece of our stand; drawing in crowds and bringing a new found appreciation for the young talent within our industry.”

“We cannot thank everyone who took part throughout the course of the competition enough for their participation – the skills displayed by our entrants across bodyshops and colleges has been phenomenal and we hope to continue our efforts to support the budding talent in our industry”
