MP hands out prizes

Have your say

SOUTH Yorkshire MP Angela Smith has given prizes to around 20 schoolchildren from around her constituency who won the annual competition she holds in which youngsters are invited to design the Labour politician’s Christmas card.

Ms Smith holds the contest in conjunction with primary schools in her Penistone and Stocksbridge seat and the winning designs were sent to almost 2,000 people including Prime Minister David Cameron, Deputy Prime Minister, Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg and Labour leader Ed Miliband.

Ms Smith, who presented each of the winning youngsters with prizes of art sets and remote-controlled cars, donated by local sponsors, said: “I would like to thank all those children who took part in the competition.”
