Kristan-Lee is Honorary Litter Angel

A Litter Angel has had her winning poster design put up in local McDonalds car parks following a recent anti-litter poster competition in primary schools across Sittingbourne and Sheppey.

Kristan-Lee Kruger, aged 9, from Milstead, was made an honorary Litter Angel when she won the 2013 Litter Angels competition. She was presented with a certificate, a mug and a £50 cheque, whilst her winning poster was printed onto a metal plaque and will be displayed in the car parks of the McDonald’s restaurants, along with previous winning posters.

Local MP Gordon Henderson helped the owner of our local McDonalds restaurants, Paul Crocker, present Kristan-Lee with her very own plaque to hang in her bedroom. Kristan-Lee was also allowed the chance to make her own strawberry milkshake behind the restaurant counter.

Kristan-Lee, said:

"I was so happy and shocked when I won the Litter Angels competition. Everyone that took part in the competition was so good. When I had to go to McDonalds to see my poster up it was the best day ever. I was so proud to see it up outside McDonalds and I was allowed to make my own milkshake and smoothie. Mr Henderson is the best MP ever and so funny! Don't forget DON'T BE A FOOL PICKING UP IS COOL"

Mr Henderson said:

“I hope the competition and Kristan-Lee’s winning poster will remind children and my constituents not to drop litter and think about their environment. It was lovely to meet Kristan-Lee and present her with her prize. She is a sweet little girl and a deserving winner.”

Also in attendance was Katherine Baker, the Head of School of Milstead & Frinsted Primary School, who added:

“I first became aware of the Litter Angels Charity when Gordon visited Milstead and Frinsted School as part of a class topic on Europe and current affairs. We are lucky to be located in a beautiful village, surrounded by woods and wildlife and as a school community we feel strongly about protecting our environment and keeping it clean and healthy.

“The children were really enthusiastic about the competition to promote the reduction of litter and we were absolutely delighted when we found out Kristan-Lee had won. We have asked Kristan-Lee for ideas on how to spend the £100 prize money the school won and she would like to purchase extra bins for our playing field which will hopefully make a difference to the amount of litter we collect. It has been fantastic to see her artwork produced and displayed in the local community.”
