Dewsbury and Mirfield MP Shahid Malik has been visiting local primary schools to hand out prizes and certificates in his annual Christmas card competition.

The MP organises a yearly competition for Eid and Christmas cards where local children are asked to design a card and the winning entries are used for Mr Malik’s own card, which is sent out to thousands of homes in Dewsbury and Mirfield.

Shahid was at Westmoor Junior school last Friday to present a £25 book voucher to winner Chloe Dawson and a £10 voucher to Holly Loftus who was on of six runners-up. Every child who entered will also receive a certificate.

Children from all the Primary schools in the constituency were invited to take part, and some 250 designs were received.

Shahid Malik:

"Looking through the cards the children have designed is one of my favourite jobs of the year and so is visiting the schools in January to hand out the certificates. The standard is always good and it’s tough to pick a winner.

"The tradition of designing and sending cards at this time of year is a great one, and long may it continue!"
