Delighted Taylor McAlpine with his award winning card


A six-year-old aspiring artist who specially designed a card for The Queen’s birthday had it enlarged and posted to her.

Maypole Primary School pupil Taylor McAlpine was selected out of 150 entries and was awarded a £100 Sainsbury’s voucher for his school.

The talented student said: “I am very happy that the queen is going to receive my card.”

All entries to the Sainsbury’s competition, including Taylor’s award-winning design, will be displayed in the Crayford supermarket this week.
