Eight year old Alisha Razzaq from Blantyre got to see her winning lorry design come to life this week after she won the SPAR Scotland design a lorry livery competition. The winning design made a special delivery to SPAR Blantyre on Tuesday 25 May when Alisha got to see her illustration in full technicolour.
SPAR Scotland announced the design competition last year for the first time by inviting customers to design livery for a SPAR lorry. After hundreds of entries, the eight year olds image was chosen.
Alisha completed the picture during the lockdown and said: “It was so exciting to see the SPAR lorry arrive at the store with my picture on it. It looks huge! I’m really happy with how it has turned out. It’s bright and colourful with the sunshine, green grass, flowers and trees. I’m sure it will make everyone smile when they see it! I also can’t believe everyone is going to see that it was me who designed it!”
Alisha’s mum Michelle Razzaq said: “We are so pleased for Alisha! She is always drawing and colouring and to see one of her pictures on a SPAR lorry makes us feel very proud.”
Paula Middleton, Marketing Manager at SPAR Scotland, said: “We had lots of entries from many budding artists from around Scotland but Alisha’s picture made us all smile. We are sure our colourful lorry will also make everyone smile when they see it delivering essential food and drink items to SPAR stores around Scotland.”
