Christmas treats for arty schoolboys
Swinton schoolboys Ellis Bishop and Lucas Devlin put their artistic skills to good use in a Christmas card design competition. Seven-year-old Ellis was chosen as the winner of the competition, organised by our Swinton store on Bolton Road, while Lucas, five, was runner up.
Nine primary schools were invited to submit entries – including Ellis’s school, St Charles RC Primary off Moorside Road and St Augustine’s C of E Primary School, where Lucas is a pupil. Swinton store manager Keeley Lord surprised Ellis and Lucas when she visited their schools to announce the winners of the competition.
Ellis was given a £50 voucher to spend at Wynsors, while Lucas won a £30 voucher. Both boys were presented with 12 footballs for their respective schools. Keeley said: “We received some fantastic entries but Ellis and Lucas’s designs really stood out. A big congratulations to both boys!” Ellis’s winning design will feature on Christmas cards sent out to Wynsors and customers.
