Willow Hayden, 10, has her very own bespoke cycle helmet after she won a design competition to promote safe cycling. Here she is pictured with Dave Taylor from West Suffolk Headway, Scott Braker managing director of Coastline Graphics and Dave Morris, head of art at Howard Middle School.

Pupils at Howard Middle School were invited to design cycle helmets for West Suffolk Headway’s annual cycle ride last month.

Some 80 different designs were judged. Willow’s was chosen as the best and she received a brand new cycle helmet decorated with her own design.

The design was put onto the helmet by Coasline Graphics and the helmet donated by Revel Outdoors.

The competition was aimed to promote safe cycling to prevent brain injuries.

The presentation was made on Hats for Headway day and pupils wore their pyjamas to school to raise funds for the charity.
