RSBC’s Royal Creation Competition

Two young sisters sat at a table full of crafts materials and cardboard crowns. The older girl is drawing a circle inside a white paper plate. She is also wearing a golden cardboard royal crown.

RSBC is deeply honoured that His Majesty King Charles III has accepted the patronage of our charity. This continues the many years of Royal Patronage our charity has enjoyed, including most recently the late Queen Elizabeth II.      

We know that King Charles is dedicated to improving the lives of young people so that they can build better futures, so we’re taking this opportunity to celebrate, and share with the King how pleased we are that he’s now our patron! 

And this is where you come in! If you’re blind or partially sighted, aged up to 25 years old, and live in England or Wales, it’s time to get creative, because you could become a Royal winner!
