Three lucky Renfrewshire school children have had their artwork selected to be made into Christmas cards through the Provost’s Christmas Card competition.

Harleen from St James Primary in Renfrew, Lily Jane from Heriot Primary in Paisley, and Alexander from Houston Primary in Houston were selected by Provost Cameron from thousands of entries and will see their designs printed professionally and sent all over the world.

Each winner was also surprised with the chance to switch on the Christmas lights as part of Renfrewshire’s Christmas events.

Alexander – Houston Primary

Lily Jane, who switched on the lights in Paisley said: “I was really surprised and excited to win the Provost’s competition. When I found out I would be switching the Christmas lights on I felt so lucky – I couldn’t wait for my friends to come and celebrate with me.”

The Provost’s Christmas Card competition is an annual competition to select the Provost’s official Christmas cards, and this year was ran in partnership with I Am Me, with all submitted cards being passed on to the charity to be sent out to elderly residents across Renfrewshire this Christmas.

“This year I was looking for winter wonderland themed cards and all the entries were fantastic. It was a tough choice but three designs really stood out.

Provost Cameron said: “Selecting my official Christmas cards is something I look forward to every year and I always love seeing the designs that are sent in.

“I hope Harleen, Lily Jane and Alexander enjoy seeing their designs come to life and that they each had a brilliant day out with family and friends at one of our Christmas events.

“The competition will run again next winter so keep an eye out on my social media channels to find out more information on how to enter nearer the time.”
