A six-year-old from Pontyclun has seen her artistry rewarded with gifts from a local opticians.
Lily Stegall, a year two pupil at Tonysguboriau Primary School, created a model of her local Specsavers store at the Talbot Green retail park as part of a ‘local landmarks’ art project.
Lily showed off her artistic flair by using cardboard and colouring pencils to create a replica of the optical store.
Hannah Davies, retail director at Specsavers Talbot Green, says: ‘Lily has done such an amazing job at creating her own cardboard version of our store.
‘We wanted to show our appreciation by sending Lily and her classmates some new toys and art supplies so they can continue making fantastic artwork.’
To say a further thanks for her efforts, Lily was gifted with a voucher for a new pair of glasses for her to collect in-store.
‘Pride in the community’
Ms Davies adds: ‘We were so pleased to meet Lily in store and gift her with a new pair of pink frames, which look great, and certainly gave her something to smile about.’
Sharing a recent post on Twitter, pupils at Tonysguboriau Primary School are seen to be enjoying the new toys gifted by Specsavers, including a giant Connect 4 and some large packs of Crayola craft sets.
Ms Powell, teacher of the year two class, said: ‘The children loved the toys that they were given - they were so enthused by them.
‘The whole class ended up using the gifts to build even more models of local landmarks at home. I think it really gave a bigger sense of pride in the community.’
