Winning Poster depicting Spring Day on a Bicycle
In conjunction with this Western Province Cycling Association league event, the Wannabees Cycling Club has ran a competition at the Raithby Primary School, beneficiaries of the Cycling Clubs social responsibility program. Each pupil in the school had to design an events marketing poster featuring the elements of spring and bicycles.
The overall winner of the competition depicting Spring Day on a bicycle is Randi, a Grade 3 pupil at the school. Her prize for winning the competition was a lunch provided to her entire class by KFC.
“We congratulate Randi who is in Grade 3 her poster stole our hearts.”
“We invite any and all who wish to support and
sponsor this event on the day to please contact Sue at Wannabees
