Recipients of this year’s Christmas card from Downing Street will be treated to a photo of the Prime Minister’s dog, as well as an image created by an Uxbridge College student.

The card, which is set to come through letterboxes this week, features Dilyn the dog playing in the snow in the Downing Street garden.

More than 7,000 cards will be sent around the world to world leaders and embassies as well as parliamentarians, influential civil society groups, charity sector leaders, and individuals who were key to the response to the coronavirus pandemic.

On the back of the card is a design hand drawn and painted using watercolour and acrylic by student Tejinder Virdee from Uxbridge College. The image was chosen from 15 designs submitted by students aged 16-20 years, all studying Level 1 Art, Design & Media and Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design. They were commissioned by the Prime Minister in his position as local MP.

“Many thanks to the students at Uxbridge College for their brilliant art work for the Downing Street Christmas card. I want to say thank you to Tejinder and all the students who participated for their wonderful designs.’’
