Christmas Card Competition 2019 is now closed for entries
We will be announcing our 2019 card and digital e-card winners here later this year along with details of our new 2020 competition.
Our 2018 winner was Steven Ferrari
Steven Ferrari’s beautiful watercolour landscape ‘Snowy Winter Walk’ was chosen as last year's winner.
Steven was only 45 years old when he suffered a stroke. With restricted movement of his right side and severe communication difficulties, he could no longer work and found socialising difficult.
Art therapy helped him to build his confidence back up and provided him with an opportunity to connect with people in a similar situation. His winning design perfectly captures the feeling of walking through fresh white snow on a tranquil winter morning.
A number of Stroke Association groups across the UK offer art therapy sessions helping improve stroke survivors self-esteem and build confidence.
Each year through our Christmas competition, artwork by a stroke survivor such as Steven is made into a limited edition Christmas card and sold to raise vital funds for stroke survivors.
