Coachmakers Charitable Christmas Card for 2020 – ‘Giddy up’

Under 13 winners and overall winners Alex and Amber Cornforth

After a tight fought competition through a point marking system, and much deliberation by our learned judges – Hon. Goldsmith and International Jewellery designers Leo and Ginnie de Vroomen, sculptor and artist Gerry Judah, international car designer Assistant Giles Taylor, Hon. Assistant and Chairman of the Livery committee Richard Robinson, and the Master – who were delighted to announce that Alex and Amber Cornforth were chosen as our winners of the 1st prize in the under 13 section.

The team then judged the winners from all the winners in each category and Alex and Amber’s card ‘Giddy up!’ received more points than anybody else’s and was therefore declared first prize overall winner. Double congratulations!

The judges were particularly pleased that it met the brief on all counts and that two siblings were able to work together without issue, which rather highlights this year’s lockdown challenge. We loved the nod to the NHS on the coach roof and diversity within the penguin line-up, and of course for the Coachmakers, a fine coach with possibly the longest harness ever seen, which they shout out loud that they love! It is a happy card in these challenging times and will undoubtedly put a smile on people’s faces when they receive it through the door this Christmas.

Amber and Alex’s artwork will be produced as the Coachmakers’ Charity Christmas card for 2020 and is on sale now here. Cards cost £8 for 10 cards with envelopes, plus postage.
