Barlborough Hall School pupil, Sarah Chantry, has beaten more than 6,000 young pupils from across the country to make the top 10 in a national sock design competition.
The budding young Derbyshire designer took part in the Catholic aid agency, CAFOD Find Your Fairtrade Feet competition for seven to 11 year-olds.
The aim of the competition was to show entrants that the choices they make in buying Fairtrade products can make a real difference to farmers and producers in the developing world.
Pupils were invited to design a Fairtrade-themed sock and designs were received from pupils from thousands of pupils from 142 schools.
The panel of judges picked out Sarah’s as one of nine runners-up and she received a voucher to spend at SockShop.
Her teacher at Barlborough Hall, Frances Wilson, said: “I was delighted to hear that Sarah was a runner up, with over 6,000 entries it was an outstanding achievement.”
“Sarah certainly is a developing talent.”
