It’s that time of year again as Steve McCabe, MP for Birmingham Selly Oak, launches his annual Christmas card competition for local primary schools.
Steve is once again asking local children to design a Christmas card about what Christmas means to them. This year the competition, which is sponsored by Oakton Estate Agents and Davisons Solicitors, will see Year 4 pupils from schools across the constituency competing for a whole host of prizes, most importantly to feature on Steve’s official Christmas card, sent to people in the constituency and across the country.
Many of the schools taking part set the competition as homework for the October half-term and will each send Steve their favourite designs. Once all the entries are in, Steve will have the final sleigh on the winning design. In 2019 over 14 primary schools took part and Steve is expecting even more schools to join the fun this year.
Steve McCabe MP said:
“After what has been a particularly challenging year for schools and pupils, I’m glad to give local school children something to look forward to as the winter begins to draw in.”
“I would like to thank Davisons Solicitors and Oakton Estate Agents for sponsoring my Christmas card again this year; it’s great to work with local businesses on projects like this and it wouldn’t be possible to do it without them.”
Michael Oakton, Oakton Estates, said:
“We really enjoyed being a part of Steve McCabe MP’s Christmas Card Competition for the first-time last year and we’re really looking forward to seeing this year’s winning design.”
Helen Bartlam, Business Development Manager at QS Davisons, said:
“QS Davisons have supported Steve McCabe MP’s Christmas Card Competition for many years, and we are thrilled to be in a position to support the competition once again.”
“The competition provides local children with a great opportunity to get creative and spread some Christmas cheer.”
