David and Samantha Cameron's Christmas card

David and Samantha Cameron's Christmas card for 2006 has been designed by seven-year-old Scarlett Sadler from Woodstock Primary School in Oxfordshire.

Mr Cameron went to the school in his Witney constituency to congratulate Scarlett personally on winning an annual competition to design the card he sends out.

The theme of the card is 'Christmas in Woodstock'. The cards will be printed locally, and David Cameron will donate the money he saves by not ordering House of Commons cards - £100 - to the chosen charity of the winner.

Scarlett has chosen the charity 'Mary's Meals' which is a school-feeding project in third-world countries.

David Cameron said: "Every year I enjoy picking the winner of this competition although it is always a tough decision as standards are very high. To me this means much more than ordering them in from the House of Commons shop and I hope the children enjoy getting involved too. I am delighted with Scarlett's great design."

'Mary's Meals' began 4 years ago, initially feeding 200 orphans in nursery schools. It now feeds 100,000 children daily in Malawi alone. The £100 will enable 19 children in Malawi to be fed and receive an education for the next year. (Photo : Oxford Pictures)
