Design careers on the cards?
Les Q pupils, Daisy Barnard and Thomas Henebury artwork chosen for Hospice Cards
by Jeff Hathaway

Jersey Hospice Care ran an open competition earlier in the year for local artists to submit designs for their 2009 range of Charity Christmas Cards. Of the 15 designs selected, two feature the work of Les Quennevais School art students Daisy Barnard and John Henbury.
Beth Lloyd, Co-ordinator, told La Baguette: “Both students are just 14 years old but in the view of the judges their work was equal to designs submitted by more mature artists”. She added: “Les Quennevais School submitted several paintings all of which were of high standard, but two designs in particular stood out and we had little hesitation in selecting ‘Snowmen’ by Daisy Barnard and ‘A Christmas Robin’ by John Henbury”. “The sale of the cards will make a vital contribution to our fundraising efforts. We are very much hoping that Hospice, being a local charity, and all the cards, both locally designed and printed, that ‘Think Twice, Buy Local’ has a particular significance. The fact that two of the designs have been produced by talented young artists is in our view a tremendous asset and both Daisy and John should be justifiably proud.”
The aims of Jersey Hospice Care is to maximise the quality of life for people in Jersey needing palliative care due to cancer or motor neurone disease. It cares for and supports patients, their families and carers through a range of services - which are free of charge and run entirely on the generosity of the public through donations and fundraising activities.
“We are hoping that the Christmas cards will generate a valuable income source for Hospice - and thanks to these students we have, what I am sure will prove to be, two very popular designs”, said Beth
