A SCHOOL pupil from Pembroke Dock has bagged a big prize in an art competition organised by the town’s Tesco store. Grace Taylor, aged 9 of St Mary’s Catholic 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 reusable jute shopping bags, which will now be distributed free to parents and children at the winning school. And this week, young Grace, accompanied by classmates, family and school staff visited the Click+Collect unit at Tesco Pembroke Dock to pick up their prize.
Schoolchildren had been asked by the tesco.com team to design an eyecatching picture to go alongside the Click+Collect design to promote the new service in which shoppers can order groceries online and arrange to pick them up at a time to suit them from a collection point in the car park. The collection point was initially a temporary one, but due to local demand has now been made permanent.
Grace’s entry was selected by judges for its colour, impact, sense of fun and style. The Click+ Collect service is already a big hit with busy customers who want their grocery shopping picked and packed, but don’t have the time to wait at home for a delivery. The convenient service is a great shopping solution for busy mums and young professionals on their way home from work or anyone just returning from holiday.
