This award is presented to an individual(s) who is/are truly dedicated to the sport of Gymnastics.
Lucy’s life was dedicated to the sport of Gymnastics from the age of 4. Lucy had an inner drive and passion for wanting to do her utmost best to make a difference to this world in everything she did. She was a truly dedicated gymnast and appreciated everything a parent of a gymnast brings with it. The holder of this trophy can take strength in her spirit of dedication, passion and elegance, Making a difference in everything you do.
Lucy would of wanted everyone to appreciate her passion and to give you strength in performing, smile at the judges and keep/snap to the beat/rhythm and jazz hands! Make your final pose for Lucy and say “this is me and I did my best!”.

Let me give some context of the meaning of this photo to me. Lucy was travelling to Heathrow on a train from Newport and onto Turin, Italy to perform for the first time internationally as an Acrobatic Gymnast. It's one of my personal favourites as, to me, it shows her thoughtfulness and appreciation for music. She was looking at the nature around our beautiful country and building the strength to perform the best she could in a foreign land whilst looking forward to the "Italian experience". The "final pose" photo merge was from a competition in Yate International Gym where she trained every day after school before her death. To us, it's a portrayal of "that's my best I can do, mark me what you will, I did it and 100% enjoyed it!, THIS is me!" The combination of the photos shows her thoughtfulness, the appreciation of music, the passion for performing and doing her utmost best in what she did whilst, in the background, coping with all the other "normal" teenage stresses of exams etc.. #special Neil x
Photoshop merge thanks to Kael Matthews - Will miss you Kael! You have skills! 😉

Decision time, do we (LEF) pay £10k on a charity package/entry (again) on the Cardiff Half next year (2020) for 100 runner’s entries. A pledge "intent to raise" of £250 for each entry (with £25 entry upfront covering special fundraising pack, running shirt and “quality“ water bottles and a special after party for runners, friends, family and supporters) we could benefit LEF by at least £12k profit. Based on this year’s efforts we have not raised this profit due to our commitments to share fundraising with other charities very close to our hearts. Yet, for us raising awareness of SEPSIS was the most important thing this year and sharing this with The Jacob Abraham Foundation and Mind was really special. Go or no go, that is the question…. 250 likes and we will make it happen…xx #muchlove -- ... See MoreSee Less
I loved seeing the Lucy Ellis and Think, could it be sepsis tops around Cardiff. I shouted and cheered on the supporters and the runners. Most looked at me as if I was crazy. £250 is a very reasonable low pressure amount for people to raise. I say go for it. Also, found this on the Flickr pages, been meaning to share. 😊😊
Why not do it and not have the big party and goody bags etc. . I dont think anybody would mind meeting up and buying their own food and drink etc. The main aim is to be seen running etc and as lovely as it was I don't think anyone would expect all of that for free and would gladly still do it xx
I was at the Cardiff half and your presence there was great I think your doing amazing job of raising awareness and using your grief in such a productive way is totally admirable x be lovely to see your runners there next year ❤️
I’ll run x
