George McDonald, from Woodlea Primary School in County Durham, and Isabella Bradbury from Rockliffe First School in Whitely Bay, have been recognised as safety superheroes by Northern Gas Networks.

The pair were North of England winners in a national annual creative competition to raise awareness of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.

Their colourful safety posters highlight the dangers of CO, both in the home, and while outdoors, such as while camping.

They were congratulated in person by Northern Gas Networks’  Jill Walker and Alex Brightman, during a school assembly.

They also travelled to the Houses of Parliament to receive winners’ certificates alongside other regional winners from around the country.

Jill Walker, Northern Gas Networks’ Social Strategy Project Manager said: “Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless gas, which can be fatal when breathed in. It is known as the silent killer – and for good reason.

“Making children aware of the causes of CO, and the tell-tale signs and symptoms, from an early age, is really important to keep the next generation safe and sound.

“We were very impressed with George and Isabella’s entries, which were colourful and impactful, with a clear and persuasive message. They are very worthy winners for our region.”

Alex Brightman, a Community Care Officer for Northern Gas Networks, gave safety talks to participating schools about the dangers of CO.

She said: “It has been so rewarding making children across our region aware of the dangers of CO. This annual competition is an incredibly valuable way of making young people alert to CO, throughout their lives. The children’s entries have been fantastic.”

The national competition is run each year by the companies responsible for managing the gas distribution networks across Great Britain. It is open to children aged 5-11. Entries can be in any media, such as eye-catching posters, cartoons, videos, models, short stories or poems that are informative and accurate in warning of the dangers of CO poisoning.

All winners received trophies, as well as a monetary prize for themselves and for their school.
