PICTURE PERFECT START

We asked pupils aged 5-8 years old from schools across the country to draw a picture of someone in their community who makes a difference to their daily lives; we like to call them national treasures.

We received over 8000 entries, here are some of our favourites from across the country. You can see more pictures of children's heroes in your local John Lewis.
