Victoria draws on her talent.

A YOUNG girl from Bulkington has drawn on her own health concerns to come runner-up in a national art competition.

Victoria Bradley, above, who celebrates her eighth birthday today, has growth hormone deficiency and has to inject herself daily with a replacement synthetic drug.

The talented youngster who lives in Barnacle Lane, Bulkington, entered the competition run by drug companies Pharmacia and Upjohn and an advertising agency.

The aim was to design a sticker to be distributed to hospitals across the country to be used to brighten up a Genotropin pen, a device used to inject growth hormone.
