This year’s winner was 10 year-old Georgie Chapman, whilst Millie Gunn (aged four), Franco Camilleri (aged seven) and Thaila Houry-Sykes (aged six) were in second, third and fourth place respectively.

Partner Lee McClellan said: “I went to Treetops School to present the prizes and it is always a pleasure to visit a school that is full of inspirational teachers and pupils. It is impossible not to be impressed by the work done by everybody at Treetops. Palmers is proud to be associated with the school and its students and we once again enjoyed their involvement in our Christmas card competition.”
