Poorly Erith child Brook Randall won a Christmas card competition to get the holidays off to the perfect start.

The nine-year-old, who suffers from a condition that affects his joints, is a patient at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in London, won the competition the hospital held in association with construction firm Willmott Dixon.

Brook’s design of a snowman will be sent to all of the company’s clients and suppliers and he was given a Wii console as an early present.

Martin Harris, of GOSH, said “The patients have really engaged with the Christmas card competition and enjoyed getting creative with their designs.

“We can’t wait to see Brook’s finished card”.
