A pupil at Litcham School has been chosen as one of the winners to design a new stamp.

Connie Stuart, from Sporle, was one of 606,000 children to enter the Heroes of the Pandemic Royal Mail competition - a world record for a stamp-design competition.

The children were asked to design a stamp highlighting heroes from all walks of life.

Connie's design shows an NHS worker wearing a face mask saying 'Saving Lives'.

Over the coming weeks each of the eight winners will have a special dedicated postmark that will celebrate their achievement. The postmark will be applied to stamped mail delivered to addresses nationwide

All eight winning designs were approved by the Queen

The stamps are now available to pre-order at www.royalmail.com/heroes and by phone on 03457 641 641. They will be available on general sale from Wednesday, March 23.

Connie will receive £1,000 in high-street vouchers and Litcham School also gets £1,000.

Simon Thompson, Royal Mail CEO, said: “As we approach the second anniversary of the first lockdown, it’s fitting that the nation’s children have taken the lead in celebrating the heroes of the pandemic. They have captured the resilience and determination of the British people in eight drawings. I think they look great!”
