Spirit of Christmas wins local school £1,000 donation

Fitzmaurice Primary School in Bradford-on-Avon were celebrating today after one of their pupils won Energy Management’s annual competition to design the cover of the company’s Christmas e-card.

Over 350 Primary schoolchildren from the Wiltshire town entered the competition and the judging panel, made up of Energy Management staff, were impressed by the high standard of artwork produced.

Idris (pictured) won first place for his colourful depiction of Christmas, with fellow Fitzmaurice pupils, Megan and Daisy, chosen as runners-up. All three received Christmas goody bags from Energy Management owner Gary Weston, his wife Jacy and Energy Management Account Manager Emma Street.

“They were all excited to receive their prizes and it was wonderful to see their smiling faces,” said Emma.

“Our festive e-card will be going out to customers later this week adorned with Idris’ lovely work.”

As a reward for winning the competition, Energy Management will be sponsoring a school project focusing on internet safety, worth £1,000.

A number of children from Fitzmaurice Primary School will attend a course that will teach them how to be safer online, before sharing their new-found knowledge with the wider school.
