Denbighshire Leisure Ltd (DLL)’s ‘proud to be Welsh’ competition received hundreds of entries from children sharing their love of the Welsh culture.

They designed a poster that would be printed onto DLL fitness instructor t-shirts.

DLL invited young artists to participate in a t-shirt design contest themed around ‘What Makes You Proud to Be Welsh’, aimed at children aged 11 and under.

More than 150 entries were received and due to the high quality of the entries, three winners were picked to receive Ninja TAG tickets at SC2 Rhyl.

Daisy, from Ysgol Dewi Sant, came up with the winning design and her poster was printed and worn by DLL fitness instructor t-shirts across all of their fitness sites.

Emma, from Ysgol Caer Drewyn, and Darcie, from Ysgol Bryn Clwyd, were also picked as winners and will receive two Ninja TAG tickets each.

Jamie Groves, Managing Director at DLL, said: “As a Welsh business it’s important to us to celebrate our Welsh culture and this year it’s been a delight to see all the amazing entries for this competition.

"We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who competed in our poster design competition of 'What makes you proud to be Welsh'.
