In December we launched the inaugural NPC Haiku Competition. Readers of this blog were encouraged to muster their energy and creative spirit to write a bit of charity or philanthropy-inspired lyrical magic – in the form of a three-line verse with the traditional 5-7-5 syllable structure.

The competition didn’t quite catch the imagination as we had hoped but we received some great entries.

Thanks to everyone who posted a poem. The winner was the haiku below from Anonymous, who will receive a bottle of champagne and a mention in Giving Insights (in return for identifying him or herself).

Thoughtful funding for
All charities! ‘Cept us, be
Wreckless with funds for us.

Also a special mention to Robin Bogg for his contributions.

You can enter again in December 2010…
