The Coffee Club New Zealand and KidsCan has chosen four children’s designs to feature on new Christmas cups and napkins and each have earned their school a total of $9,000.

More than 300 designs were received from over 30 schools to find the four winners.

The Christmas Cup competition aims to raise awareness of the work being done by KidsCan to support the education, health and wellbeing of children living in hardship, it is now in it’s third year and has seen $30,000 donated to schools and the kids by The Coffee Club in that time.

The first placed design, to appear on the large takeaway cup features 10-year-old Portia De Luen’s drawing of a cow and a sheep helping a kiwi bird place a star on the top of a Christmas tree.

Designs will appear on takeaway coffee cups and napkins in stores from November.
