HPBig Christmas card delivered to the Queen of England : The Queen of England has received the largest Christmas card ever to be sent to the Royal family. The huge 9ft x 5ft card was hand-delivered to Buckingham Palace by a group of young children from NCH, the children’s charity. The Big Christmas card was received by Palace footmen on behalf of the Royal family. The giant Christmas card contains festive digital photos from thousands of British people across the country, and also features goodwill messages from Britons to the Royal family. Photo expert HP spent the last two months collecting the photos and messages as part of their “Colourful Christmas” charity fundraising effort for NCH, the Children’s Charity.

For each of the first 10, 000 pictures and messages donated for the card, HP donated £1 to the NCH. This money will help disadvantaged children around the country. Norman Richardson, HP Consumer Director said “We found that British people were keen to show the Royal family how Christmas is celebrated in their own homes. This card gave the opportunity to do this, as well as help disadvantaged children to enjoy a more colourful Christmas.” Sam Meads, Fundraising Manager at NCH, called the Festive Card “a fantastic and generous initiative by HP, with a sentiment that mimics our own. Through this generous donation, HP will help our Keeping Families. Together project and help families with disadvantaged children to make the most of the holiday season.” Kids within our projects don’t tend to receive cards and our hope is that with HP, we can re-awaken the nation’s interest in warm, family orientated, festive messages,” Meads added.

About the “Keeping Families Together” project
Can you remember your best Christmas moment? Perhaps you enjoyed a turkey dinner with the family? Or built a snowman with the kids? For the 50 000 children in care in the UK today, their childhood memories will not include their mum and dad or their brothers and sisters and this can have devastating consequences. "When my dad died my mum found it hard to cope. I didn't want to go into care, but I was given no choice. I remember that I would lie down at night and cry, whilst thinking about what my mum, and sisters would be doing without me." Derek aged 14 who had been in care for 8 years.
