Our North East team and Ryhope Junior School collaborate for Christmas card competition

Our North East team collaborated up with Ryhope Junior School to organise a Christmas card competition involving 188 pupils. The goal was to bring some Christmas cheer to residents at the nearby Burdon Fields development by having school children create festive artwork.

Spreading Christmas cheer

The pupils showcased their artistic talents, creating a variety of Christmas card designs that captured the holiday spirit. The competition winners were announced, with the top three places receiving vouchers of £50, £30, and £20 to reward the pupils for their efforts and spread some festive cheer. To thank all participants, our North East team gifted each child at Ryhope Junior School with Christmas-themed stationery. The gesture was a way to express gratitude for their hard work and to enhance their holiday celebrations.

The winning Christmas card design has been reproduced and sent as a special greeting to residents at the Burdon Fields development, adding a personal touch to the festivities within the community.
