A creative pupil from Malvern has won a Christmas card competition with her cute angel, festive tree and church design.

The intricate creation by eight-year-old Hollie, who goes to Malvern Parish School, has beaten scores of others to win the prize offered by Worcestershire estate agents – Nicol and Co.

Hollie has won a £300 donation for her school’s library, along with 30 copies of the card for her own family’s use and a Santa’s sack of goodies worth £50.

Matt Nicol, managing director Nicol & Co, which has branches in Droitwich, Malvern and Worcester, explained that each year the estate agents asks local children to design their company Christmas card.

The competition ran throughout late November and early December, with the company’s Facebook followers deciding on the winner via their online approvals.

Mr Nicol said: “Once again, it was great to see all the colourful entries that we received, and we all had wonderful fun watching our Facebook followers decide on the best with their ‘likes’ and ‘shares’.

“I enjoyed watching how Hollie’s design won the day as it was such a carefully thought out card.

“She is obviously a very talented little artist and it’s just the kind of colourful design we were hoping for.”

Mr Nicol added: “We are delighted that Hollie gets to enjoy a prize for herself, and that Malvern Parish School can now invest in some new books for all its children.”
