Ely pupil bags the donation donation for school

We received lots of brilliant entries and it was difficult to choose an overall winner. My team and I have really enjoyed being involved with the local community - the competition definitely got us all thinking about why Ely is a very special place to live and work.”

ST John’s Primary School in Ely has won a Tesco Ely Design a Poster competition and bagged a �500 donation thanks to talented pupil Edward Ouzman.

The store, on Angel Drove, invited pupils in East Cambridgeshire to design a poster about why they love Ely.

Edward’s award-winning design was printed on a Hessian Bag for Life. With just 5,000 of these bespoke bags made exclusively for Tesco Ely it is hoped they will help to raise funds for the Tesco charity of the year – the Alzheimer’s Society.

Edward’s class were invited to the store for an official presentation and to hand out bags to customers for a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society.

Edward, aged 10, who also won a �100 Tesco Gift Card, said: “I was amazed when Miss Bassett told everyone that I won the competition. I felt really happy and I stood up and everyone clapped. I don’t know what I’m going to spend the money on yet, �100 is a lot! I can’t believe that the picture I drew is now on a bag in the store.”

Store manager, Michael Greener, was on hand to present the school with the �500 donation and said; “The I Love Ely Design a Bag competition was a brilliant way for the pupils to express why their home town is so special. We received lots of brilliant entries and it was difficult to choose an overall winner. My team and I have really enjoyed being involved with the local community - the competition definitely got us all thinking about why Ely is a very special place to live and work.”
