Leeds Credit Union announce the young winner of their School Christmas Card Competition

Carly Jiali Huang, aged 8 of Sacred Heart Primary School was announced the lucky winner of the Leeds Credit Union Christmas Card design competition.

Carly received a PC tablet for her winning design and the school won a donation of £250 to their funds thank to her efforts.

Leeds Credit Union ran this competition throughout primary schools in Leeds and received over 50 entries. The competition was run to raise awareness of the importance of saving to children and also to have a unique design for the credit union’s corporate Christmas card this year.

Chris Smyth CEO, Leeds Credit Union commented:

“We ran this competition to raise awareness of the importance of saving and the response has been great. It was really hard to select the winner as all the designs were fantastic but Carly’s bold design of using our Potts family characters with the message of saving really stood out”

They currently run schemes in over 30 schools and have a simple website www.schoolsaving.club for schools to manage their school saving clubs.
