MP launches Christmas card competition for children

High Peak MP Robert Largan has launched a Christmas card design competition for local school children.

The MP says he's trying to be environmentally friendly by not sending out a paper Christmas card. 

Instead, he's sending out an e-card and donating what he would have spent to local charity Reuben's Retreat.

The MP says he wants his e-card to "reflect the best of High Peak and showcase the creativity of local children". 

The competition is open to all children under the age of 13, with the winning design being sent out to over 5,000 local residents.

The MP says there's no criteria for the design, which could be about the High Peak or Christmas or something completely different.

Entries can be posted to the MP's constituency office at:

Robert Largan MP
18 Market Street
Whaley Bridge
High Peak

The deadline for applications is Tuesday 1 December.

The MP commented: "I’m doing my bit to be environmentally friendly by not sending a paper Christmas card and donating the cost to support brilliant local charity, Reuben’s Retreat. But I want my e-card to look great and showcase the creativity of local children. I look forward to seeing what the children of High Peak come up with!"
