A prize winning drawing by an 11- year- old Newry schoolboy has gone national.

The drawing, by Nathan McKnight of Bessbrook Primary School, has been chosen from hundreds of entries to be printed on Tesco staff polo shirts in over 300 stores across the UK. Earlier this year, the colourful artwork was the winner of Tesco Newry Extra’s ‘design a bag’ competition which promoted the town’s new Click+Collect Groceries service. Nathan’s winning artwork was printed on 250 reusable jute shopping bags which were later distributed free to parents and children at Nathan’s school. His design, now printed on polo shirts for Tesco staff nationwide, has won him a further £250 donation for his school and £25 gift card for himself. Click+Collect allows shoppers to order their groceries online and arrange to pick them up at dedicated collection points in store car parks. The Click+Collect service is already a big hit with busy customers who want their grocery shopping picked and packed ready to collect at a time that suits them. The convenient service is a great shopping solution for busy parents and young professionals on their way home from work or anyone just returning from holiday. Customers who would like help placing their first order can call Tesco’s dedicated UK based call centre for new customers on 0800 323 4040. Tesco was the first supermarket to launch the Click+Collect drive through service in the UK in 2010 which has been hugely successful and is now available in over 350 locations across the country.
