Mary Swanwick pupils design Toby Perkins’ Christmas card

Big smiles, bright colours and fantastic art work created a festive atmosphere as pupils of Mary Swanwick Primary in Old Whittington displayed their entries to Toby Perkins MP’s Christmas Card competition.

Each year Toby works with one school to design his Christmas Card, with year group winners and parents invited to a special event to reveal the overall winner.

Over 3,500 cards will now be sent to local people, businesses, organisations, MPs and dignitaries like the Prime Minister and Her Majesty the Queen. Mary Swanwick Primary school children will be

looking out to see if their card is sitting on the mantelpiece at this year’s Queen’s Speech on Christmas Day!

Toby Perkins MP said: “It was a real pleasure but a tough task choosing just one winning design. All the children’s efforts were excellent – we’re lucky to have so

many talented young people and committed teachers in Chesterfield. The winning design beautifully depicts a snowy scene in Chesterfield, and I’m sure people will be delighted to receive it”

Toby Perkins said “ I am very grateful to the sponsors of this year’s Christmas Card, Weightron Bilanciai, CCS Media and NAPIT, whose continued support has made this year’s card possible”.
