Christmas Cheer as Helen chooses Christmas Card Competition Winner

Helen Grant, MP for Maidstone and the Weald and Minister for Sport and Tourism, has chosen Chiamaka Mbadike, Aged 9, to design her official Christmas Card for 2014.

Chiamaka, from St Francis Catholic Primary School in Maidstone, was among almost 200 entries to Mrs Grant's Christmas Card Competition from primary schools across the constituency. Her winning design depicts Father Christmas with his reindeer at home.

Among other highly commended entries were Saull John, Age 9 from Allington Primary School; Emily Lane, Age 9, also from Allington Primary School; Aimee Shaw, Age 6 from Brunswick House, and Lani Noorullah, Age 10 from St Francis.

Mrs Grant's official card will be sent out across the constituency, to Members of Parliament – including the Prime Minister, and prominent figures across the worlds of Sport and Tourism.

Commenting on the winning card, Helen said:

"Choosing from so many brilliant entries was really tough, but Chiamaka's fun and festive drawing stood out.

"I was delighted to present her with a prize from the House of Commons at St Francis's school assembly this morning

"Many thanks to all the children that took part and congratulations to those that were also highly commended

"I would like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and all the very best for the New Year"
