A creative student from Tenbury will have her work sent far and wide this Christmas

The Mayor, Cllr Eric Hudson has chosen a Christmas card to send this year, which has been designed by a pupil at Tenbury High Ormiston Academy, Hollie Weaver, who is in year 10.

Hollie entered an annual Christmas card design competition organised by the Ormiston Academies Trust.

The Trust received entries from all the academies and the winning design is used as OAT’s Christmas card. Hollie’s design was the runner up. This was an excellent achievement and with more than 40 academies taking part there were a lot of entries.

When Tenbury High Ormiston Academy posted the news on social media the school received lots of enquiries about Hollie’s card.

Hollie decided she would like to have the card printed and sell the cards for charity. Hollie chose the Place2Be Youth Mental Health Charity as during these difficult times it is clear this an area that is needed more than ever.

The Mayor, Cllr Eric Hudson will be sending the Christmas card to other civic dignitaries, local shops, and organisations.

Tenbury High School Ormiston Academy has a long history of its involvement with the community of the town.

In a normal year the head girl and head boy from the school would take the part of Mistletoe Queen and Holly Prince at the annual Mistletoe Festival in November.

Students from the school also normally play a major part in the town’s annual Remembrance commemorations.
