King’s Lynn pupil scoops Christmas prize for himself and Greyfriars school

Daniel Boughan designed top card in store competition

Pupils at a King's Lynn primary school had more reason than most to get into the festive spirit when they won a Christmas card competition.

Greyfriars Community Primary School scooped Tesco Gaywood Design a Christmas card prize and bagged a Christmas workshop plus a �250 donation thanks to star pupil Daniel Boughan, 6, who also won a �50 Tesco gift card for himself.

The store, in St Faiths Drive, Gaywood, asked pupils in the community to design a Christmas card and enter a festive competition.

The winning class took part in the special Christmas workshop where children got the chance to decorate their very own delicious ginger bread creations with Jackie Barnett, a Tesco home economist.

Store Manager Colin Rigby was on hand to present the school with the �250 donation and said: 'The Christmas workshop was a magnificent way for the pupils to finish the term. Everybody had a terrific time creating their ginger bread treats. My team and I really enjoyed being involved with the local community - the competition definitely got us all into the spirit of Christmas.'
