Seven year old's design gets hospital stamp of approval 

Christmas has come early this year for seven-year-old Susannah Costley-White from Salisbury whose winning design was chosen for the Salisbury District Hospital postage stamp.

Susannah was one of around 15 children in the Trust's holiday playscheme that worked to the theme of Christmas as part of their summer activities.

The idea was the brainchild of Portering Services Manager Paul Freeman, together with the Post Room team, as a way of fundraising for the Trust's children's fund. The stamp can only be used in the hospital's internal post with each strip of 13 stamps available for a suggested donation of £1.

Paul Freeman said: " Each year we deliver hundreds of cards as we go about our normal internal mail delivery around the hospital, and we just thought it would be a great way of raising money for children's services."

"All the designs were of a very high standard and Susannah's was particularly colourful. She decided to focus on the Christmas tree surrounded by four to five layers of coloured presents." Ends
