South Wales food wholesaler, Castell Howell have announced the winning design of their Christmas lorry design competition.
Martin Jones, Castell Howell Transport Director said: “As a family business we head into the festive season with hope. We’re determined not let Christmas loose it’s sparkle, so we asked primary schools across the country to draw their very best Christmas pictures for a chance to see their design on our annual Christmas lorry.
“We thank each and every one of you for taking part. And it’s fair to say that picking the winner from the thousands of entries was extremely tough.”
