Trip to the Zoo for winner of Selly Oak Christmas card competition

Steve McCabe MP was thrilled to present Owais Hussain, winner of his Parliamentary Christmas card competition with a fun day out to Dudley Zoo, so he may be seeing Rudolph earlier than he thinks!

Every year, Steve runs a Christmas card competitionwith local schools and once again was faced with thedifficult task of picking a winner out of hundreds of creative and imaginative designs from pupils across Selly Oak constituency.

As part of the annual competition which is sponsored by Oulsnam and Davisons Solicitors, pupils were asked to design a Christmas card which signifies what Christmas means to them. Over 15 primary schools took part this year and after much deliberation; Owais Hussain of Billesley Primary School was picked as the winner. Owais’ fantastic design features on Steve’s Christmas card which is sent to hundreds of people in the constituency and across the country.

Steve and sponsors, Ian Williams and Helen Bartlam presented Owais with a special certificate during a Christmas Service at Holy Cross Church in Billesley along with a prize which Owais picked himself-a trip to Dudley Zoo!

Steve also presented prizes to close runner-ups, Amber Fletcher from Colmore Junior School and Kathryn Day from St Jude’s Catholic Primary School with family tickets to the Sea Life Centre and the Snowdome. Amber and Kathryn were both equally surprised when Steve and their parents turned up in the middle of their school day to present them with a certificate in front of their classmates.

Steve McCabe MP said:

“Congratulations to Owais for his brilliant design, the runners up and everyone who entered! I received so many fantastic entries and it was tough to pick one but Owais’ was very colourful and really summed up Christmas. I really hope Owais, Amber and Kathryn all enjoy their fun days out.”

“I would like to thank Ian Williams and Andrew Oulsnam, Managing Partners of Oulsnam Estate Agents and Gary Davison from Davisons Solicitors for sponsoring my Christmas card again this year; it’s great to work with local businesses on projects like this and it wouldn’t be possible to do this without them. I would also like to thank Dudley Zoological Gardens, Crescent Theatre, Cineworld, Bowlplex, Away2Canal, the Hippodrome, the REP theatre, Adventure Mini Golf, Thinktank Science Museum, the Sea Life Centre and the Snowdome for their very generous prize donations.”
