An art-loving Steeton youngster is celebrating winning a television drawing and colouring contest.

Seven-year-old Amina Touray was rewarded with toys and a winner’s certificate after entering the competition run by Channel 5’s ‘Milkshake!’ – a programme slot designed for younger children.

Amina’s mum, Sarah Touray, said: “Amina had to draw her favourite character doing something helpful, so she drew Peppa Pig helping her little brother George cross the road.

“She won a range of toys and her name and picture is on the Milkshake website. She’s chuffed to bits.”

Amina is a pupil at Eastburn Junior and Infant School.

Mrs Touray added: “She’d do art day in, day out if she could. She absolutely loves it.”

A spokesman for the competition organisers said: “We asked viewers to draw a picture of their favourite Milkshake! character being helpful.

“Everyone here at Milkshake! thought Amina’s picture was superb. She was a very deserving winner.

“We especially loved the description on the back of her picture, which was: ‘Peppa Pig helping George Pig to cross the road sensibly’ – a very sweet and thoughtful Milkshaker!”
