A Christmas card fit for an MP

Lisson Grove pupils celebrate designing Karen Buck’s Christmas card

NORTH Westminster MP Karen Buck visited a Lisson Grove primary school last week to congratulate winning pupils on designing her official Christmas card.

The annual competition sees pupils from different primary schools battle it out for the winning card design which is then sent out to thousands of recipients as Ms Buck’s official card.

Visiting Christchurch Bentinck primary school last Thursday, Ms Buck awarded the winning pupils with book vouchers.

“I’ve previously had St Augustine’s, St Mary Magdalene’s, Wilberforce, Queen’s Park, and St Peter’s schools design the cards so I’m well on my way to covering all the schools in the area,” she said.

“This year’s winner is of a nativity scene, which is very nice.

“The kids enjoy drawing the pictures and it’s always a pleasure to go into the schools and say thank you for designing them for me.”
