A COMPETITION to design a Christmas tree that represents equality and diversity was held at St Mary's Hospital.

Staff at the Isle of Wight NHS Trust and teams from Isle of Wight College were challenged to design a 'Diversi-Tree'.

The trees were judged on their ingenuity and in aligning to the theme of equality and diversity.

The overall winner was the 'Sensitree', designed by the apprenticeship team of the Isle of Wight College.

Runners up were the engineering team, learning resources centre and the insight team.

The competition was thought up by Sam Greatrex, the equalities lead for the Isle of Wight NHS Trust.

Judges were Bestival boss Rob da Bank, the trust executive director, Chris Palmer, and Rosie Barnard, the equality and diversity manager for the Isle of Wight College.

Prizes were donated by the Isle of Wight College, Asda, Body Shop and Isle of Wight Tours.

Julie Pennycook, trust director of human resources and organisational development, said: "The trees are a great tribute in supporting equality and diversity, as well as providing much delight for patients, visitors and staff alike.

"Do pop along to the Full Circle Restaurant where the trees are on display throughout the festive season."
