Portraits of key workers: caring as a calling

collage of key workers

Key workers have been essential in ensuring people can stay safe, stay active and keep accessing vital services during COVID-19. Bus drivers, sales assistants, police, doctors and carers have all played a crucial role in each one of our lives this year. I want to make my Christmas card a celebration of those who have given their all to helping our community. If there is a key worker who has impacted your life – be it your teacher or your postie, you can show your thanks by using them as your inspiration for the ‘Portraits of key workers: caring as a calling’ Christmas card competition.

Please note this competition is only open to school students in Erith and Thamesmead aged 18 and below.

    The artwork must be A4 size and include the pupil’s name, age, class & school. It must feature a Key Worker and be accompanied with a few sentences describing who the Key Worker is and why they are special to the child.
