Project Description


West Country Blacksmiths were privileged to have been asked to design and make the Ross Paterson Creative Writing Award, on behalf of the charity, Get Home Safe.

The award is presented annually to the winner of a new writing competition which was started in memory of Ross Paterson, at Richard Huish College in Taunton.

Ross was like every other young adult on a night out, the only unusual and extraordinary thing about that night was that he was never to return home; all of his dreams and aspirations were wiped out in an instant.

Get Home Safe may be a small charity, but it has a big message to spread. The charity delivers talks around schools and colleges, highlighting the dangers to young adults making their way home from a night out.

The award itself is a bespoke design and it has been handmade to depict a hand holding a fountain pen and is wrapped in brass and mounted to an carved oak base.
