An Alfreton school pupil has bagged a big prize in an art competition organised by the town’s Tesco store to tell customers about their Click & Collect Groceries online shopping service.

Alix Wilson (10), of Christ The King 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 re-usable jute shopping bags which will now be distributed free to parents and children at the winning school.

Alix, accompanied by classmates, family and school staff, visited the Click &Collect unit at Tesco Alfreton to pick up their prize.

Schoolchildren had been asked by the team to design an eye-catching 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 in the store at a time to suit them.

The in-store collection service is the first of its kind in Alfreton.

Alix’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.

Customers who would like help placing their first order can call Tesco’s dedicated UK based call centre for new customers on 0845 0700811.
