Seven-year-old Molly Robson, a pupil at Leechpool Primary School in Horsham, West Sussex Santa Drawing has been chosen to appear on the Royal Mail Christmas Stamps.


The winning design were chosen from over 240,000 entries received from children aged four to 11, in response to the question: What does the Christmas season mean to you?

It is only the third time in Royal Mail's near 500-year history that children have designed the Royal Mail's Christmas stamps.

The judging panel was led by the Prince of Wales, who presented a framed copy of the winning designs to the two girls at a special meeting at Clarence House.

Royal Mail chief executive officer, Moya Greene, said: ``These wonderful images capture perfectly what Christmas means to many people throughout the UK.

``We were overwhelmed that the competition received more than 240,000 entries and Molly now follow in the footsteps of some highly acclaimed children's designers and illustrators who have designed Royal Mail's Christmas stamps in the past .''
