John Packer's Christmas Giveaway prize winners have been announced.

John Packer winner

 

Following a packed bag of entries John Packer has announced the winner and runner-up of our 2012 Christmas Giveaway.

In December we asked schools and teachers to nominate young music students that were deserving of a new instrument for Christmas.

Debate

After much debate the list was whittled down to four candidates with the top prize — a JP277 tuba — being awarded to Bradley Robertson in Surrey.

Bradley (pictured) was nominated by his teacher Lewis Gibbs from Sutton Music Service for his commitment to music and local orchestras; occasionally arriving on a scooter with his tuba!

Meanwhile, Kieran Davies, a promising young clarinettist from South Wales was awarded a JP221.

He has made remarkable progress since beginning playing in September. His teacher Mrs Rowberry — who has been teaching for more than 20 years — said he had obvious natural talent and would go far.
