CREATIVE youngsters across Glasgow are ­being called on to pick up their paint brushes to aid sick children.

Yorkhill Children's Charity has launched this year's calendar contest - and it needs city pupils to help it out.

Charity bosses need 12 colourful pictures to fill the 2015 calendar - and raise money to support Glasgow's sick kids' hospital.

But young artists have a task ahead to beat the high standard of entries from last year's challenge.

Entries can be submitted to Yorkhill Children's Charity by downloading a pack from their website or by doing the same from Central Car Auctions website.

Drawings should be submitted by Friday, May 30, with the winners being announced at a special prize-giving ceremony on June 11.
