Otto Haigh is hoping to sell all 200 he has made to support The Sussex Snowdrop Trust and Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice.

The six-year-old said: “Christmas is my favourite time of year and I especially love drawing pictures and doing artwork of all the festive things. I loved making these cards and I hope you like them too.”

Otto’s mum Lisa said: “He is delighted so many people have supported him in his first charity art project.

“During the second lockdown his art class was cancelled, this project has fuelled his main passion – painting, drawing, cutting and glueing.”

Otto is selling his Christmas cards for £1.50 each on the Nextdoor app, where all designs are available to view.

The cards are also on sale at Dovecote View care home in Westhampnett, as well as through Otto’s family, friend and neighbours.
