Our Christmas card competition 2024 is now open!

Many stroke survivors use art in their recovery. Each year, a stroke survivor’s artwork is made into a limited edition Christmas card and sold in our card range to raise vital funds for stroke survivors.

You can see our latest winning design below for Christmas 2023 – Reindeer in the Snow by Katie Ryan-Palmer.

Hand painted illustration of two reindeer in a snowy landscape

For Katie’s winning entry she chose to paint a watercolour design of two reindeer historically associated with Santa and Christmas so they seemed to be the perfect choice. “Art and being creative really aided my recovery after my stroke as well as of course my family who were so important to my healing.’’

How to take part

If you, or a stroke survivor you know, has a passion for painting, sketching, drawing or any other form of art, we would love to hear from you.
