Redruth pupil bags supermarket prize
8:00am Sunday 10th March 2013 in Cornwall
A Redruth school pupil has bagged a big prize in an art competition organised by the town’s Tesco store.
Essie Edwards, aged 9,of Rosemellin Primary School, won £250 for the school plus a £25 Tesco gift card for herself.
But the best prize of all was seeing the winning artwork printed on 250 re-usable jute shopping bags which will now be distributed free to parents and children at the winning school.
And this week young Essie , accompanied by classmates, family and school staff visited the Click &Collect unit at Tesco Pool Extra Redruth in Station Road, to pick up their prize.
Schoolchildren had been asked by the tesco.com team to design an eye-catching picture to promote the new service in which shoppers can order groceries online and arrange to pick them up
Essie’s entry was selected by judges for its colour, impact, sense of fun and style.
