Christmas Card Competition


Here’s your chance to get your design featured as the official Explore Learning e-Christmas Card. 


We need your help!

Do you have creative flair?  We need your help to design a fantastic, festive image
for our Christmas e-card.

It’s important that we do our bit for the environment, so we will be continuing our tradition of sending our Christmas card to thousands of Explore families across the UK by email.

Who do we support? 

This year, we are supporting Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity with a £750 donation.

“Our Roald Dahl Nurse has been a beacon
of light in our darkest of hours”
Cherie, mum to Will

Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity provides specialist nurses and support to seriously ill children and their families. The charity is currently able to support over 24,000 seriously ill children across the UK through their network of 82 Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses. During this difficult year, for many of these families their Roald Dahl Specialist Nurse has been the only person to turn to.

This year, we are supporting Children’s Hospices Across Scotland with a £250 donation.

“I can’t thank CHAS enough
or everything they did for Tommy”
Tommy’s Grandmother

For over twenty years CHAS have been offering a full family support service for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions. This includes palliative care, family respite and support – through our hospices, homecare services and hospital presence.
