An Ely school pupil has bagged a big prize in an art competition organised by the city’s Tesco store.

Daniel Smietanski, aged 6, of Spring Meadow Infants and Nursery school, won £300 for the school plus a £25 Tesco gift card for himself.

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

And this week young Daniel accompanied by classmates and his mum Agnieszka visited Tesco, in Angel Drove, to pick up their prize.

Schoolchildren had been asked by the Tesco team to design an eye-catching picture to go alongside the store’s click and collect design to promote the new service in which shoppers can order groceries online and arrange to pick them up at a collection point in the car park.

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