Moorland Fuels is pleased to announce Alice Luke, age 9, from Okehampton has won the competition to design the fuel company’s Christmas card. The card will be sent to Moorland Fuels’ Gold Service Customers and handed out by drivers throughout the month of December.
This is now the third year that the company has run its Christmas Card Contest. This year almost 300 children from nine different schools throughout the area participated.
“We really look forward to this competition every year,” said Moorland Fuels’ managing director Ben More. “Alice’s card really stood out to us because of its bright colours and its wintry feel. We liked the level of detail she added to her entry with reindeer, robins and an elf driving the tanker.”
Alice entered the competition because she enjoys making her own designs and thought it would be fun to create a Christmas card. This is only the second competition she has entered and is thrilled to win.
“I did the design I did because I like colourful and pretty patterns and I thought it looked Christmassy,” said Alice.
Alice will receive a family day out at Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre, £20 of spending money and Moorland Fuels has donated £25 to her chosen charity Macmillan Cancer Support. She chosen Macmillan because her grandmother is currently very poorly with cancer and she wanted to support the nurses who are caring for her.
A selection of Moorland Fuels’ favourite entries can be viewed on the company’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/moorlandfuels.
As the countdown to Christmas continues, the team at Moorland Fuels are encouraging people to check their oil tanks regularly and top up now before the peak pre-Christmas rush starts. Moorland Fuels is also continuing to offer free delivery on coal orders of 10 bags or more, or customers can come to the company depot on North Road to pick up smaller orders of coal.
