A Leyland schoolgirl has bagged a big prize in an art competition organised by the town’s Tesco to tell customers about the new Click and Collect online shopping service.

Eleanor Cook, aged 10, of Woodlea Junior School, won £250 for her school plus a £25 Tesco gift card for herself.

But the best prize of all was seeing her winning artwork printed on 250 re-usable jute shopping bags, which will now be distributed free to parents and children at the school.

Schoolchildren had been asked by the tesco.com team to design an eye-catching picture to go alongside the Click and Collect design to help promote the new service, which enables shoppers to order groceries online and arrange to pick them up at the collection point in the car park.

Eleanor’s entry was selected by judges for its colour, impact, sense of fun and style.

Accompanied by classmates, family and school staff, Eleanor visited Tesco Extra in Towngate to pick up the prizes.
