GEORGIA Rughetta has had an amazing week after becoming “Smiggle Girl”.

The eight-year-old from South Maroota was treated to a shopping spree at her favourite store, Smiggle in Castle Towers, after giving singer Adele a Smiggle voucher during her concert at ANZ Stadium last Saturday.

Georgia used her birthday money to buy the Smiggle voucher, which she passed on to Adele so that she could get her four-year-old son Angelo a gift.

“When mum picked me up from school she told me Smiggle rang and said I could come in for a shopping spree.

“I squealed. I like Smiggle because it has it has all the cool things.”

Georgia picked out pencil cases and other stationery equipment, but she said her favourite item is a UFO launcher that launches a flying disc.

When she arrived at Smiggle on Thursday, Georgia received a backpack and a $250 gift voucher, and some of her relatives also received vouchers.

“It was very exciting,” Georgia said.

But Georgia is not the only child to benefit from her new fame as Smiggle will donate $500 worth of goods to her school, Dural Public School.

Georgia’s family have also matched the amount they recieved in vouchers and will donate $400 worth of Smiggle stationery to Ronald McDonald House in Westmead.

“It was a decision we made as a family,” Georgia’s mum, Nikki, siad.

“Georgia has been very lucky to have her dream of meeting Adele come true, so we just want to do something to give back.”

Georgia said she is looking forward to handing the items over to the children at Ronald McDonald House.
