A YOUNG carer’s artwork caught the eye of judges.

Rio Gordon, aged six, won the top prize – a VIP zoo trip – in a fostering agency’s contest with an owl drawing.

His family, of North Anston, foster children.

Rio said: “I like all the children that stay with us. I like helping to look after them.”

Julie, Rio’s mum, said: “Rio is a great carer, we’re proud of him. I’d encourage anyone thinking of fostering to go for it. Despite the challenges, it is rewarding and we are supported by Fostering People.”

The competition, run by Fostering People, encouraged children to be inspired by the animal kingdom.
