Get creative for MHA’s Design a Christmas Card competition

The results for our Christmas Card Competition are now in.

Congratulations to Val Farrar, our overall winner whose design will be animated as MHA’s official e-card this Christmas.

Val’s beautiful design, along with those of the other 9 winners below, will be printed to make up MHA’s Christmas Card packs, available for a suggested donation of £5 a pack through all our Homes and Schemes from October onwards. Congratulations and many thanks to all the winners…your design will help us raise funds from sales of Christmas Cards. All proceeds will go towards supporting older people in communities of their choice, to lead safer, more active and fulfilled lives.
