Christmas Card Competition WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT!


The winning designs have been announced for our Christmas Card Competition #CreateYourChristmasCard that was open to people living with dementia, ran in partnership with MindForYou.

We were overwhelmed by the response, with so many beautiful and creative entries. We were thrilled to welcome celebrity judge, singer and actor Tony Christie to choose the winners, and he picked these two designs.
