Congratulations to Cara Lloyd and Amelia Paine
In conjunction with National Safeguarding Week back in November, Welsh Gymnastics held a competition to design a poster to support our speak up campaign.
The purpose of designing the poster was to create something that would raise awareness for gymnasts on the importance of speaking up.
To speak up about their concerns – and how and where they could do that within gymnastics.
There were two separate categories for the poster competition; one aimed at younger gymnasts and one targeting older gymnasts.
We would like to thank everyone who entered. There were lots of lovely entries supporting this important campaign, showing a great awareness of the importance of speaking up and where to get help.
The winning designs were from Cara Lloyd (Fusion Gymnastics Wales) and Amelia Paine (Valleys Gymnastics Academy) – who also both receive a Milano voucher.
We would also like to thank Milano Pro Sport for supporting this competition.
The judging panel that was made up of Welsh Gymnastics CEO Michelle Fulford, Wales’ NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) representative Laura Whapham and independent safeguarding consultant Ieuan Watkins
“It’s great to see Welsh Gymnastics encouraging young gymnasts to speak up and tell someone if something is worrying them,” said Laura.
“I think the posters will definitely encourage more young people in clubs across Wales to share how they are feeling.
“Well done to all the gymnasts who took part and produced some fantastic posters!”
The two winning designs from Cara and Amelia will now be made into posters and shared with clubs across Wales.
