Local girl wins MP's Christmas card competition

A pupil of Bramford Primary School in Dudley has won local MP Ian Austin's Christmas card competition.

A Christmas card designed by Charleigh Finch of Bramford Primary School in Dudley will be finding its way through the letterboxes of hundreds of people across the country, including the Queen, the Prime Minister and the Speaker of the House of Commons, after the youngster won Ian Austin’s Parliamentary Christmas card competition.

Austin will be presenting Charleigh with her chosen with her prize at Bramford Primary School during their school assembly on Friday 9th December at 9am.

Austin invited local school kids to design his parliamentary Christmas cards and received hundreds of entries.

The winning design shows a Christmas scene with Santa flying over with Dudley Castle.

The cards have been professionally printed in full colour and include the name and school of the winner and three runners up. Prizes include a family ticket to Dudley Zoo and Castle, a family ticket to the Black Country Museum and gift vouchers for Hobbycraft.

The card will be sent to hundreds of Dudley residents, charities, businesses and community groups as well as national figures like the Queen, Prime Minister and the Speaker of the House of Commons.

Ian Austin MP said:

“Yet again, the standard of this year’s entrants has been really high. I loved Charleigh's design of a local Christmas scene with Dudley Castle.

“It’s a huge privilege to go to Bramford Primary and present her with an award for her design skills.

“I’d like to thank all of the children and the schools who entered, and the local businesses who donated prizes.”
