Elsie & Fleur

We’re inviting schoolchildren to get involved with our Christmas card competition and help raise funds for charity at the same time.

All they need to do is come up with an eye-catching festive design and incorporate everything we love about Christmas. One of our talented makers, Angie Spurgeon, who designs and sells a variety of greetings cards and wraps with us, 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.

Entries can be sent to hello@elsieandfleur.co.uk before Monday, January 4, 2016. 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. The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Angie said: “I am very excited about having a chance to see what the children come up with. When it comes to Christmas we all become children at heart so I think that gives our competition entrants a big advantage. A good Christmas card captures all the magic and joy of the season. Successful designs are often bright, eye-catching and fun and don't be afraid to add some sparkle.”

The Jemima Layzell Trust helps young people with brain injury. It was set up by Jemima’s family and friends in her memory after she passed away in 2012.

It works to raise funds and support young people suffering from brain injury or trauma with their physical rehabilitation and metal wellbeing.

Sophy Layzell, who is a trustee for the charity and also Jemima’s mum, said: “Jemima would have loved this and been one of the first to enter. The Jemima Layzell Trust are so honoured to be chosen as the charity to receive funds from such a creative and exciting competition. Good luck everyone!”
