Swaffham Bulbeck charity Red2Green has beaten 70 other entrants to win a national competition - thanks to its colourful poppy field print "expressing hope and positivity".
The charity which every year helps 300 young people and adults with learning disabilities on the autistic spectrum or living with mental ill health, is currently Skanska’s charity of the year.
Together, they worked together on the AstraZeneca project at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and won the 2017 Ivor Goodsite hoarding competition.
The winning design, which is 2.4m high and 25m-long, shows a background print of a poppy field, with colourful images of flowers, birds and butterflies added to it, expressing hope and positivity.
As part of the process, members of the construction team supported Red2Green clients and learners to create 25 pictures which were then made into A2 size and added to the display.
Dean Poillucci, Skanska’s project director, said: “I’m delighted that the team’s work with the charity has been recognised with this award.
“The new hoardings are a great addition to the area and will have a positive impact on the local people who see them.”
