Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham held his sixth annual Christmas Card Competition Prize Event last Friday at the Dagenham Civic Centre. The Council Chamber was transformed into Santa’s Grotto – and was full of presents which this year for the winners and runners up included some fantastic gifts! All the prizes were presented in front of a packed chamber by Jon Cruddas MP and Father Christmas.

This year’s Christmas card competition prize giving event was another huge success; with more schools and children taking part than ever before. There were also more business sponsors this year than ever which allowed Jon and his team to make the competition prizes bigger and better than ever before. The overall winner Kamila Andziulyte from Marsh Green Primary School was asked what she wanted for Christmas up to £250 – she chose a top of the range 16gb Samsung Galaxy Tablet PC.
