Thousands of fantastic entries were submitted to Jon Cruddas MP’s Christmas Card Competition from local schoolchildren across the constituency this year. After much deliberation, Jon was able to choose the winners, and on Friday 5th December he invited them to his presentation event and awarded them their much deserved prizes.

The event was held in the Dagenham Civic Centre and saw an excellent turnout of young winners, parents and guardians, teachers and sponsors from the local business community. 

Last Friday Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham held his much anticipated Christmas card prize event. With 10 local schools and businesses from all over the constituency, this year was bigger than ever. Over 150 people attended the event, including the 21 school winners and runners up, the two over all runners up and this year’s winner Neda Lajauskaite age 10 from William Bellamy School.

Over the past few weeks, following the success of last years competition, Jon’s constituency office has been filling up with thousands of bright, creative and innovative Christmas cards designed by pupils from all corners of the constituency; Dagenham, Rainham, South Hornchurch and Elm Park.
