Children of the staff of Bexhill broker Hastings Direct entered en masse this year to win the company's annual Christmas card design competition — the winning designs were then incorporated into the company's official Christmas card.
Top prize of iPod nanos went to Claire Sargeant's ten year old daughter Chloe for her Santa on his sleigh design, whilst Keeley H won in the under eight category for her Santa and Mrs Claus.
Edward Fitzmaurice, CEO, Hastings Direct: "Chloe and Keeley's designs really captured the spirit of Christmas. Now their designs will be our official 2011 Christmas card and they will be printed and sent to all Hastings Direct's partners. However, the very first two cards will be sent to Chloe and Keeley and their respective families to wish them a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!"
