Christmas cards

This year, we ran a competition asking children from Stoke-on-Trent to design a Christmas card for us. Stoke-on-Trent is one of our Literacy Hubs, and is an area with very high literacy need.

The competition was judged by author and illustrator Nick Sharratt. We received lots of amazing designs from children across the town, so we narrowed it down to a shortlist of 12, and Nick then chose the overall winner!

Our official National Literacy Trust card this year was designed by our competition winner Seren Daily from Sandon Primary Academy. Nick Sharratt said: "I absolutely love this! I love the graphic quality... what a super design, congratulations Seren!"

Order online by Friday 6 December 2019, and we'll get your cards to you in good time for Christmas!

There are 12 wonderful designs to choose from - take a look at our gallery below!

Our suggested donation amount is £7, which could give the gift of reading by providing a disadvantaged child with their very first book to choose and to keep.
