And the winners are…

People who receive support from Affinity Trust have been putting pen, glue and glitter to paper, as they raced to design the charity’s best Christmas cards.

The seasonal creativity was inspired by a Christmas card competition which anyone supported by Affinity Trust could enter.

Announced in November, the competition led to a massive wave of artistic activity, with 102 designs being submitted.

Some of the entries were drawn, some painted, while others were assembled from card, glitter, cotton wool and other materials. Among the most popular subjects were angels, trees, Santas and snowmen.

Donna Leedham, Director of Operations and Quality for southern England, said: “Getting over 100 entries was fantastic. There were so many different designs and pictures and people had been amazingly creative. I was so glad I wasn’t a judge!”

The judging panel was also made up of people Affinity Trust supports. Loz, Mary, Paul and Stuart reviewed all the entries by video call, choosing their top five and then whittling those down to the winning three.


The overall winner was a cotton-wool-and-glitter Santa, designed by Derrick, who lives in Bexhill-on-Sea.

Second prize went to a Christmas wreath designed by Benjamin, Charles, Dean, Janyce, Susan and Teresa, who live together in East Sussex. The wreath features all their hand prints.

Third prize went to Fiona, who lives in Cambridgeshire, for her collage of trees, Santas and snowmen.

The super-talented winners all received a certificate and Love2Shop voucher. Their winning designs will be the centrepiece of Affinity Trust’s Christmas card email.

Donna added: “Our judging panel did a fantastic job. They all had their favourite entries and they managed to choose the top three. It was great to have such a large number of entries and to see such a range of designs – thanks to all those that took part and to the judging panel for making the hard decisions.”
