Packs contain 12 cards and envelopes – four of each of the winning designs – and cost just £4 per pack, with every penny buying toys for children with cancer this Christmas.

Konnie said: “I have mine and have already started writing them!

“So go ahead and order some now so you can do the same and buy as many presents as possible for as many of those kids living with cancer this Christmas.”

Cards will arrive in two to three days – plenty of time for you to write and send to your loved ones this Christmas.

The Young Lives vs Cancer charity shops are located in Bridgwater, Clevedon, Wells and Yeovil in Somerset; Downend, Fishponds, Staple Hill and Keynsham in Bristol; Exeter, Newton Abbot and Tiverton in Devon; Saltash in Cornwall; and Gloucester.

Young Lives vs Cancer Ambassador Gaby said, “I am so proud to be a judge for this wonderful competition.

“I have seen with my own eyes what the charity is doing.

“It’s great to think that children have designed cards to buy gifts for other children living with cancer.”

Our youngest winning designer – in the under-five category – is Monty Stuart, of Lytham, Lancs, who told his proud mother Helen, “I want to make poor children smile.”

Helen, a 39-year-old teacher, said: “Monty’s father Tom and I talked to our children about how important it is to help others, especially at Christmas.”

The champion of the six to ten year old category was Siobhan Khan, ten, from Edgware, north London.

Proud mother Miruna, 40, who volunteers for Oxfam, told us: “The map shows me and Siobhan skating on a frozen lake, while the houses on our street are lit up.

“We are so proud of her. She is always thinking of others.”

Hannah Keeling, 14, of Stoke on Trent, was the winner in the 11 to 16 category.

Mother Katie, 43, explains: “Hannah’s card shows a star of hope and it took her three hours to make.

“When we heard that Hannah had won, she couldn’t wait to tell her friends.

“Christmas cards are such a beautiful tradition, much more personal than a text message.

“I hope all your readers buy many of the cards for such a good cause.”
