Alberto launched the campaign by writing to local primary schools across his constituency, as well as announcing the news of the competition on his official Facebook and Twitter accounts.

The competition will see primary school aged children in South Leicestershire design a card which celebrates King Charles III’s Coronation, with the winning entry being sent to the King himself.

All of the entries must be A4 in size, portrait, and can be submitted by post, or by taking a picture or scan of the card and emailing it to with the entrant’s name, age, and full address.

Alternatively, ostal entries should be sent to Office of Alberto Costa MP, Unit 3, 8a Lutterworth Road, Blaby, Leicestershire, LE8 4DN.

Commenting on the competition, Alberto said: “I’m looking forward to celebrating the Kings Coronation in a few weeks and thought it would be nice to get some of the brilliant, young budding artists in South Leicestershire involved in designing some fantastic cards to celebrate a truly momentous day in British history.

“The King’s Coronation marks a special occasion which many in the local area will be celebrating. I’m sure it’ll be very tricky to pick a winning entry, but I really look forward to seeing some fantastic card designs week.”
