IoW-Youth-Trust-LogoThis November, The Royal Hotel and the Isle of Wight Youth Trust are encouraging Island kids to get into the Christmas spirit and show off their artistic talents.

Under 18s who live on the Isle of Wight are being invited to submit up to 2 Christmas card designs, using any method they would like. 1 or more of the lucky designs will then feature on The Royal Hotel’s Christmas card for 2016.

In addition to having their design featured on The Royal’s Christmas card, which is distributed to guests and friends of the hotel, the lucky winner will also be treated to a scrumptious 2-course set menu lunch at The Royal for themselves and an accompanying adult.

It is also a great chance for children and young people and their families to get involved in a fun activity.”
