School girl wins bike in bag design contest

Comments (0)

A UTTOXETER school girl has won cycling proficiency courses for her entire class and a brand new bike for herself in a competition run by a supermarket in Uttoxeter.

Tesco, in Brookside Road, invited local school children to design a poster about healthy eating and keeping fit.

Winner Natasha Goodwin, aged eight, from St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School impressed the Tesco store team with her creative design which has now been printed on to limited edition reusable hessian bags.

Store manager, Mark Duffen, said: “We had an incredible amount of entries so it was really difficult for us to pick a winner but Natasha’s design really stood out for us as it was so creative.

“We loved how she had created an image of a bike made out of fruits and vegetables; it really got the message of healthy eating and keeping fit across and the bags have been really popular with our customers.”

Mark and his team invited Natasha and some of her classmates in to the store to see a preview of the bag before they became available for customers.

As well as seeing her design on the Tesco bags, Natasha was also presented with vouchers for her brand new bike and a helmet from Uttoxeter Cycles, on High Street, and cycling proficiency courses for her class from the National Cycling Academy (NCA) plus a £200 donation for her school.

Head teacher at St Joseph’s, Joyce Cassidy, said: “Our whole school is really proud of Natasha and we’re delighted that she won the Tesco competition.”
