Scargill Primary School visit Ron Brooks Toyota following a design competition. Winner was Sophie Keenan 10 who has had her design printed onto a car.

A schoolgirl has seen her bright and colourful design printed on a car after she won a competition.

Ten-year-old Sophie Keenan’s design was picked from hundreds of other entries after Ilkeston firms Ron Brooks Toyota and Excel Colour Print teamed up to put on the contest.

Pupils from Scargill Primary School in West Hallam were asked to draw up their designs to be printed on to a brand new Toyota Aygo.

Neil Haynes, a salesman at the Derby Road showroom, said: “There was no theme, we just said let your imaginations run wild and the children came up with some brilliant ideas but the judging panel agreed that Sophie was a worthy winner.

“Her design was really colourful and bright and it looks great on the car.

“We’re really pleased with how it all turned out.”

Sophie’s design has been transferred onto the car by Excel Colour Print, based on the Quarry Hill Industrial Estate, and it will be driven around Ilkeston and take pride of place at the car showroom.

Headteacher at Scargill, Andrew Poole, said: “There was a really high standard of entries and the children had great fun.

“Ron Brooks were fantastic and the car looked really good when it was all completed.”
