Little Sasha Formosa has scooped her first award in a charity competition to design a pair of glasses.

“Sasha was so excited when she heard she was a winner,” proud mum Alison Formosa said.

“She loves anything to do with colouring and crafts, so the competition was perfect for her.”

The creative Year 1 pupil from Old Ford Primary school fought off tough competition with her design to clinch one of five prizes up for grabs in a nationwide contest by Scrivens opticians. All proceeds are going to Alzheimer’s Society.

Sasha has been awarded the complete collection of Harry Potter books, which her mum things will be ideal when she’s a little older.
