Christmas contest results 2022


And the winner is…

At The Children’s Family Trust, we like to make new traditions that celebrate the creativity and talents of our incredible young people.

Our Christmas tree display at St. Mary’s Church was a brilliant opportunity to get the festive period up and running and we wanted to thank all of our families for contributing to our tree!

Competition time!

Every child who submitted an ornament for our tree will receive a £10 voucher to spend on themselves over christmas, with CEO Marina selecting a top 3 for an extra special prize. Alongside our best ornaments, children were tasked with creating a design for our official 2022 CFT Christmas card with the top 3 submissions receiving a special shout out!

Here are some of the submissions!


And our top 3 christmas cards are…

We loved the textures and themes in this year’s selected winner, and didn’t want to miss the opportunity to feature their ornaments aswell.

Congratulations 😀


Now for the big winners, it was extra tough this year as the standard was so high, Marina struggled to pick just one winner!

So TWO lucky young people will enjoy a £50 voucher each, with the runners up receiving a £25 voucher to spend this christmas.
