MP joins forces with Olympics organisers for this year’s Christmas card competition

Lynne with 2010 Christmas card winner

In celebration of the upcoming year of sport with London hosting the 2012 Games, Lynne Featherstone MP has this year joined forces with the Olympic organisers to launch her annual Christmas card competition.

The Hornsey and Wood Green MP is making the theme of this year’s Christmas card competition, which she has been running since 2005, ‘an Olympic Christmas’. She is inviting primary school students from all local schools to join in by drawing pictures that are Olympics or Paralympics and Christmas themed.

As always, the winning entry will feature on the cover of her Christmas card, to go out to thousands of people across the area, and the winner will this year also go on a special tour of the Olympic park with the Liberal Democrat MP. The winner’s class will also get 2012 Games memorabilia, and the chance to win tickets for the Games.

Lynne Featherstone MP comments:

“2012 will be something really special with London hosting the Games. I thought making this year’s competition Olympics themed was a wonderful opportunity to get primary school students excited about the Olympics and Paralympics.

“Schools are also being encouraged to join the 2012 organisers’ Get Set programme, where they will all get the chance to win tickets for both of the Games.

“I look forward to seeing some fun sporty entries this year, and taking the winner on an Olympic tour!”
