Elves, sleighs, snowmen, Christmas trees and cosy Christmas homes featured highly on the designs submitted for this year’s Curo Christmas Card competition.

14-year-old Gina Paradise, who lives in Corston near Bath, won the 10-16 age category and will see her design (pictured above) used on the official Curo Christmas card. Gina’s card, which features two busy Christmas elves, will be safely hand-delivered by Curo colleagues to more than 2,000 Curo residents living in sheltered housing schemes this Christmas along with a festive goodie bag.
Winner of the 5-9 age category is eight-year-old Kassady White of Twerton, Bath. Her design (above) imagined one of Curo’s repair vans as a reindeer-pulled sleigh.
Winner of the 0-4 category is Paris Lake’s colourful creation (above). Paris also lives in Corston and is just one-and-a-half years old.
All the winners received a £50 gift voucher and certificate, safely hand delivered by Regional Customer Account Manager Emma Newman who came up with the idea for the competition.
Emma said: “This is the fourth year we have run our competition and even though we were in lockdown we were determined it would go ahead because it’s always so popular. We had some fantastic entries again this year and we loved viewing them all - it really brightens the day! Thanks to everyone who entered.”
Here are all the Highly Commended entries - every artist will receive a certificate and sweet selection box.
