  • Competition closing date : 2 December 2019

*Sorry this competition is now closed. Please stay tuned for the decorations and winners.*

We look forward to this time of year in the VICTA office! We are pleased to announce that our Christmas decoration competition is back once again for the fourth year running.

Children from 0 to 17 years are invited to make a home-made decoration to send to VICTA for us to hang on our tree. We will then decorate our tree in the run-up to Christmas and share photos on our website and social media for you all to enjoy. By Christmas we will truly have the most special and magical tree of all thanks to all of our families.

We can’t wait to see what you create this year and it’s well worth getting crafty as there is a small treat for every entrant!

As well as a small treat for everyone that enters, there will be prizes up for grabs for three overall winners!

  • 1st place – £20 Smyths Toys Voucher
  • 2nd place – £15 Smyths Toys Voucher
  • 3rd place – £10 Smyths Toys Voucher

Plus each entrant will receive a little Christmas treat from VICTA through the post to say thank you for cheering up our otherwise lonely tree. The winning decoration will be presented last and take pride of place on the top of our tree.

The only rules are that all decorations must be able to be hung on a tree and be home-made, little ones can ask their siblings to help and use any materials you can find to hand.

Here are a few ideas to get you started!

  • Rainbow paper-chains
  • Tinfoil stars
  • Tactile baubles
  • Spiced Braille biscuits 
Some of last year’s entries:
gingerbread men
