School children from Gainsborough are being invited to design their own Christmas card and help raise funds for charity at the same time.

Youngsters aged 11 and under can enter the competition devised by www.elsieandfleur.co.uk and the winning entries will be made and sold in aid of The Jemima Layzell Trust.

Rachel Doran, founder of www.elsieandfleur.co.uk: “We’re asking them to come up with an eye-catching festive design and incorporate everything we love about Christmas.

“One of our talented makers, Angie Spurgeon, will then choose one national winner and four regional winners who will all have their cards made and sold in 2016 to raise money for The Jemima Layzell Trust.

“The national winner will also receive a £20 voucher to spend on the site.

“Entries can be hand-drawn or computer generated and can be in colour or black and white. All we ask is that there is a festive theme.

People should send their entries to hello@elsieandfleur.co.uk before Monday, January 4.

Hand-drawn entries can be sent to Elsie & Fleur, Crypton House, Crypton Technology Business Park, Bristol Road, Bridgwater, Somerset, TA6 4SY.

All entries must be accompanied with the child’s name, age, school and contact details.
