rory’s 2011 christmas card winner


Rory picked his winning Christmas card from dozens of entries sent to the local MP from schools across the constituency. The design by winner 9-year-old Danielle Rome from Year 5 at Brampton Primary School caught the MP’s eye because of its colourful depiction of a Cumbrian night sky, with yellow stars painted against a dark backdrop above a cottage roof with Father Christmas climbing down the chimney. The local MP presented Danielle with her prize of £50 of book vouchers from Penrith’s Wordsworth Bookshop to proud applause from the assembled school and parents.

Rory said: “As with last year’s competition, the standard was incredibly high and it was very, very difficult to choose an outright winner. I received some incredible entries from all over the constituency, all the way from Blackford to Kirkby Stephen to Wigton. In the end I felt that Danielle’s design was simple and striking and very beautifully painted, and I am delighted that she is this year’s deserving winner.”
