This year’s Pickfords corporate Christmas card was the result of an idea to raise money for the NSPCC. Pickfords employees Richard Summers and Mike Weatherburn came up with the idea to create a ‘Design our Christmas card Competition’. As a governor of St Georges School in Amersham, Mike took the idea to the Head teacher Toby Long who made the arrangements to create a fun competition for all the pupils, aged between three and seven years old.
One hundred and forty pupils took part and a winner and three runner ups were chosen. The winner was six year old Robin Lawrence.
Pickfords spokesperson Lyndsey Daykin said, “The competition standard was high and it was very difficult to choose a winner. In the end, we felt Robin’s design captured so many elements of Christmas and ultimately made us all smile. Congratulations to Robin and all the pupils that took part”
Robin’s design will be turned into a digital Christmas card to be sent to Pickfords customers and clients this Christmas. Pickfords will make a donation to the NSPCC for every card sent, as part of its fund raising activities for its principal charity.
