Hallowe'en pic a treat for Kidderminster boy
7:10am Wednesday 31st October 2012 in News
PUPILS of a Kidderminster school were encouraged to conjure up some ghoulish creations after being given a free craft box by bosses of a town store.
Wilkinson, in Market Street, provided the box of art and stationery supplies, including crayons, canvases, dough and washable pens, to Comberton Primary School, in Borrington Road.
Pupils of all ages were then asked to use the equipment to create a Hallowe’en picture, which was submitted to the store for judging.
Callum Griffiths, 9, was chosen as the school’s overall winner, fighting off competition from more than 80 other entries, to receive a £15 Wilkinsons voucher. His picture was put on show in the store.
Runner-up, Tegan Willmott, received a £5 Wilkinsons gift voucher and her artwork was also displayed.
Stephen Bull, store manager, said: “This is the first time we have been involved in this type of competition and decided to choose Comberton Primary School as the recipient of the donation because of its connections with several of our team members.
“The entries from the children were of a really high standard. They really utilised all of the products in the craft box and created some wonderful Hallowe’en-themed pictures. We had a very hard time picking the winner but, in the end, decided on Callum’s colourful creation as the overall champion.”
