The island’s primary school children have the chance to design a Christmas card and have their design printed and sold to raise funds for Crossroads Care Isle of Man.
The competition is being organised by Manton’s Cards, Port Erin’s award-winning gift and greetings card store.
The winning entry will be chosen by leading greeting card publisher Noel Tatt, who will print 1,000 of the winning design.
The cards will be sold at Mantons Cards with the full sale price being donated to Crossroads. The winner will also receive Manton’s vouchers and a framed copy of their design. Noel Tatt will also chose two runners up who will also receive Mantons vouchers.
‘The competition was run in 2011 and attracted over 1,000 entries,’ said Manton’s owner Chris Beards. ‘We had a such a large number of enquiries from both teachers and children to ask if Manton’s were organising the competition again, that we decided to run the competition this year. Everyone at Mantons is delighted to be able to offer aspiring artists the chance to be creative together with raising money for such an important Island charity.’
All island primary school children are welcome to enter. All entries should be delivered by hand or post to Manton’s Cards, 17 Station Road, Port Erin, IM9 6AE, by the closing date of October 19.
