During the lockdown, we received lots of fantastic rainbow and helicopter drawings that really cheered us up, so we know there are some budding artists out there who can design us a jolly Christmas card.
We love receiving drawings from our young supporters and this year we are giving you the chance to design one of our charity Christmas cards. Whether you’d like to draw our Critical Care Team, our mascot; Teddy Medic, or our familiar yellow and green helicopter, we’d love to see them! Make it festive and add in anything you like about Christmas, be it Father Christmas, reindeer, snow or presents!
Dig out that pencil case or your paints and glitter and create something really special for us this Christmas.
If your design is the winning choice, we will produce it as a Christmas card and sell it along with our other Christmas cards in our online shop. You will also receive a pack of your Christmas cards so that you can send them to your friends and loved ones.
