We would like to say a huge congratulations to Grace Parsons from Taunton who has been crowned as the winner of our Christmas card competition in aid of Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).
We know how creative youngsters can be, so we wanted to give them the chance to design their own Christmas card. We chose Grace’s drawing as the winning design as we loved her elf Christmas card. It was very well thought out and the elf looked very cheeky indeed.
Ten-year-old Grace, who’s a pupil at North Town Primary School, was awarded first place in the competition.As well as getting her design printed, Grace will also receive one of our home-grown Christmas trees.
Eight-year-old Mabel Harrison from Tiverton, six-year-old Henry Hawkins from Wellington and eight-year-old Ina Banks from Bishops Lydeard, were announced as the runners up in the competition.
All their designs will be printed and sold to raise money for CHSW. The cards can be purchased in the shop at Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm until stocks last.
CHSW is currently the only provider of specialist hospice care for children in the region. It offers much needed support for youngsters with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition and their families at its three hospices: Charlton Farm in North Somerset, Little Bridge House in North Devon and Little Harbour in Cornwall.
Wend Pollard, Chair of the Wellington Friends Group of CHSW, said: “What a fantastic way to raise awareness and funds for CHSW. We would like to say congratulations to Grace and to Mabel, Henry and Ina. The Christmas cards look fantastic. Thank you for all the hard work you put in.”
