With Christmas only a few weeks away, Specsavers in Forfar has launched a competition for primary school children in the area to design a Christmas card.

Festive Christmas card designs

All children have to do to enter the competition is drop into Specsavers on Castle Street to collect a Christmas card template and then submit their festive designs once completed.

The winner will receive £100 worth of Toys R Us vouchers, with the second place winner receiving a £50 Toys R Us voucher and two further runners-up receiving a hamper of sweets.

Children in primaries one to three at schools across the area have been invited to enter the competition including Whitehills Primary School, Aberlemno Primary School and Letham Primary School.

On display for the local community

All entries will be put on display in Specsavers’ window throughout December and members of the public can vote for their favourite design.

Blair Michie, store director at Specsavers Forfar, said: ‘Our store window is starting to look fantastically festive with the entries we’ve received so far on display.

‘We’ve had so many great Christmas card entries we just can’t decide which to choose, therefore we’d love locals to help by telling us which is their favourite.

‘I’d like to urge as many members of our community as possible to stop by our window and submit the voting slip in store.’

The competition will run until 5pm on Friday, 18 December.
