rory awards constituency christmas card prize to plumpton school
Rory this week presented the prize for his annual Christmas card competition to five year old Erin McCanny from Plumpton Primary School.
Her card was chosen from dozens of entries from primary schools across the constituency, Rory awarded first place Erin’s ‘three-robins’ design will form the cover of Rory Stewart’s official Christmas card which will be sent out to individuals and organisations across his constituency in Penrith and the Border.
Rory received a warm welcome from pupils at Plumpton, and after a few festive songs, Rory presented Erin with her card, and vouchers to spend in the Rheged Centre. He commented: “I really liked the modern simplicity of Erin’s design, and the reception I got at Plumpton School has definitely put me in a very festive mood. Choosing a winner is always a challenge when I receive so many fantastic designs, and so I would like to thank everyone who sent in such an array of colourful and festive cards. I have no doubt that everyone will enjoy Erin’s card and think it is fantastic to know it will be adorning mantelpieces across the constituency in what I hope is a very merry Christmas period for everyone.”
