Gini’s design will now be will now be printed on to cards, which will then be delivered to surrounding towns and overseas.

Sudbury mayor Sue Ayres said: “I was delighted. We had some lovely pictures and it was great to have so many children take part.

“I think it’s wonderful to use children’s art. As a former teacher, I think that’s very important.”

She will also be joined by the winner for the town’s Christmas lights switch-on tomorrow.
