Sussex Christmas tree farm launches card competition to benefit charity

A Sussex Christmas tree farm is holding its first ‘Design a Christmas Card’ competition to help a charity that supports people with spinal injuries.
Nov. 1, 2011 - PRLog -- Catsfield Christmas Tree Farm near Battle, East Sussex, has challenged youngsters to come up with a card design incorporating a festive fir. The winning designs will be reproduced and sold in the farm’s shop and online to raise funds for the Spinal Injuries Association.

The Spinal Injuries Association is a charity close to Catsfield Christmas Tree farm owner Clive Collins’ heart as he lost the use of his legs after falling from a tree while working as a forester.

Two lucky winners will each win £100 worth of books for their school courtesy of book company Red House a tree for their school and £20 of vouchers for themselves.
Clive said: “This is our first-ever Christmas card design competition and we’re really excited to see what the children produce. We want the entries to be bold, colourful and feature a Christmas tree. We also hope the competition will get Children thinking about how Christmas trees are grown.

“The Spinal Injuries Association is a superb organisation and provides information and support to people with spinal injuries. I am really pleased to be helping the charity in this small way.”

The competition has two categories, one for those aged between 4 and 7 years and one for those aged between 8 and 11 years. Entries must be received by 20th November. For more details on how to enter go to Catsfield Christmas Tree Farm’s page on Facebook. The winners will be announced on 25th November.
