Winning designs by Ashanti Hill and Poppy Wilcox
Children from Bournville Primary School and XTND-Improving Futures Charity have designed the winning illustration for Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens’ annual Christmas card.
Entries were submitted to the PCC’s Office by Lynn Winter, XTND Development Manager, a charity supported by the Commissioner’s Community Action Fund for their work with Bournville Primary School to strengthen local families through the provision of a programme of activities.
The winning designs included Santa’s red sack designed by Poppy Wilcox and Santa’s blue sleigh by Ashanti Hill and have been animated for an electronic version that will be sent out by the PCC’s Office.
PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “I was incredibly impressed by the entries we received. Amongst the designs we had angels, coloured baubles and lots of presents. I’d like to thank the children from Bournville Primary and XTND for sending me their drawings. I think that each and every one was extremely creative and festive.
“There will be many people working hard to keep us and our local communities safe throughout the winter. On behalf of the local communities across Avon and Somerset we’re incredibly grateful for the sacrifices they make for us. As we enter the holidays my thoughts are with you and with your families, relatives and friends.”
The cards will be emailed to residents across Avon and Somerset accompanied by PCC Sue Mountstevens’ warmest wishes for a happy and peaceful festive season. The winning artists have been informed and have been awarded a small gift for their hard work.
Lynn Winters said: “We were delighted when PCC Sue Mountstevens invited our children to illustrate her Christmas cards this year. The children took the commission very seriously, each creating a masterpiece with a liberal splash of glitter! We hope you enjoy them and from the staff and children at XTND we wish you all a Merry Christmas.”
