MP searches for seasonal spirit in her annual Christmas Card Competiton

The MP for Maidstone and The Weald, Helen Grant has launched her Christmas card competition inviting primary school students to design her official Christmas card for 2016.

Mrs Grant will hand pick the finalist and winner from the submitted entries and the winning card will be sent out across the constituency, to Members of Parliament – including the Prime Minister, and prominent figures across the worlds of Sport, Tourism and Media. The last competition saw Helen receive almost 200 entries from various primary schools across the constituency. Chiamaka from St Francis Catholic Primary School, helped Mrs Grant spread the Christmas cheer in 2014 with her winning design of Father Christmas at home with his reindeer.

Helen said: "The last time I ran this competition, I received some beautiful, fun and creative designs. The children were really excited in getting involved and the prospect of having their designs displayed in many people's homes. I am looking forward to seeing all the designs this year, although I know it will not be easy to choose one. Good luck to all the children"

The deadline for entries is Monday 31st October. Mrs Grant will visit the winner at their school to personally congratulate them with a small prize from the House of Commons.
