Bertie's Christmas card competition


Bertie's 2021 Christmas card competition has now closed. Thank you to everybody who entered.

Please note that this competition is only open to St John Ambulance Badgers and Cadets.

The challenge

Bertie is in need of a new design for Christmas cards that he and his friends can send out this winter. Bertie's friends in Ambulance Operations will also be giving the cards to the children and families transported by our paediatric and neonatal ambulance crews.

The prize

As well as the winning design being professionally printed and featuring on Bertie's Christmas cards, the winner will also get their very own set of their Christmas cards and a print of their design.


Bertie is looking for imaginative and creative designs, which should feature strong colours. Designs can be coloured, painted or printed, but must be a flat design.

Each Badger or Cadet can only submit one entry.

All designs must:

  • be submitted on a single sheet of white A4 paper
  • feature Bertie or take a St John Ambulance theme
  • be the entrant's own work (parents and leaders, paws off!).

Submitting your entry

Please write the following details on the back of each entry:

  • Badger/Cadet name
  • Badger Sett/Cadet unit name
  • The St John region you are from (West, North, East or London & The South)

Once you have checked this information is on the back of your entry, please post your design to:

Designs must arrive by no later than Sunday 24 October 2021 to be included in the competition.
