Thousands of children from local schools were asked to create a card showing what a ‘Glasgow Christmas Tree’ should look like and after hours and hours of judging Morven’s was chosen as the winner and the club, as well as our friends at the Insurance Brokers, today presented their ‘hat-trick’ of prizes.
Morven, whose design involved a Traffic Cone Tree Topper and an Irn-Bru Base, received a Queen’s Park goodie bag , a £50 Hamleys toy store voucher and a £100 Voucher for her family to enjoy a meal in a town centre restaurant with a taxi service provided.
Her teacher Miss Mullen was also rewarded with a Jo Malone gift bag.
Kieran Koszary, Head of Commercial at Queen’s Park, said: “This our second year of running the competition and like 2021, we were overwhelmed with the response. It was exciting to see the cards starting to be placed in the windows of the Laurie Ross, Mount Florida earlier this month and it was even more special when the windows were just cards.”
“As well as thanking Laurie Ross I would also like to thank the schools for their participation.”
The level of participation has prompted a slight rethink on one of the objectives of the competition with Kieran adding: “We were delighted with the entries both in terms of volume and standard. In fact, we had to push the deadline back by a few days to allow us to look at them all.”
“The original plan was for Morven’s card to be used as the official Christmas Card for the club however with Christmas only three days away that is no longer practical. Between Laurie Ross and ourselves we have agreed that Morven’s card will be the official 2023 Christmas Card for both parties and future competitions will be run with the objective of designing the card for the following December.”
“My thanks go again to everyone who took part.”
June Lynch, Managing Director, Laurie Ross Insurance said: “It is really heart-warming to go into our offices as our windows are full of joy and energy. We thought last year’s initial competition could not be beaten but this year has reached new heights.”
“Everyone at Laurie Ross was delighted to say ‘well-done’ to Morven for winning.”
“We would like to thank the pupils, teachers and schools for helping increase the Christmas spirit and hope that everyone has a very enjoyable time over the next few days.”
