The winning design was drawn by Jenny Williams aged 10 from class 6LG depicts a scene of celebration and unity, her design will feature on the front of this year’s Christmas card. Stella said on her visit:
'This year, my office received hundreds of beautiful and festive designs from very talented children all across Walthamstow which made choosing just one very difficult. However Jenny's colourful design really stood out. We loved the wonderful Christmas message she had written to reflect our local community. I want to thank all the children across Walthamstow for sending us their designs, we had great fun looking at all the different ideas and designs you came up with. I'd also like to thank the local businesses and organisations without whom this wouldn't have been possible because of their generous sponsorship of this project. The support of Sodo Pizza, Lee Valley Estates, Vinn Garment Care Centre, Yard Sale Pizza, Mother’s Ruin, Today Bread, Incoming Coffee, Riney, The Mall Walthamstow, Bates of London has been brilliant and has made it possible for 4,000 local and national people to receive Jenny's fantastic design.'
Jenny and all the children at Greenleaf Primary School were very excited to hear the card was going to be sent to 3,500 people, including local residents, Members of Parliament and the Prime Minister. The competition was open to all children under 12 across Walthamstow, Greenleaf Primary school won the competition for the first time with Jenny’s entry. Jenny and her family have been invited to Parliament with Stella.
