Whiteley youngster Jessica Williams could barely contain her joy after being announced as the winner of a My Little Pony colouring competition organised by her local Specsavers store.

Jessica, aged 6, wowed the team with the amazing artwork she submitted for the contest, which was launched to highlight the new range of My Little Pony glasses available at Specsavers Whiteley.

She was rewarded for her efforts with a My Little Pony toy presented to her by optical apprentice Shannon Collyer.

Prize draw

Specsavers Whitley ran the competition for the two weeks, with children aged 10 and under paying £1 to enter. All money raised has been directly donated to The Stubbington Ark RSPCA Animal Shelter in Hampshire.

The Whiteley team also displayed all of the competition pictures in their store window for young artists and customers to admire.

Lee Johnston, store director at Specsavers Whiteley, said: ‘We had so many brilliant entries for the My Little Pony competition that we had a tough time choosing a winner.

We went with Jessica because you could clearly see the effort she had made in making her drawing as neat and as colourful as possible.

‘We would like to say a big thank you to all the children who took part and helped us support the RSPCA in the process.’

Glasses are magic

Specsavers Whiteley is also appealing to My Little Pony fans by stocking a new selection of glasses featuring the popular cartoon characters, including favourites such as Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie.
