Candy Floss Attends the RoSPA Centenary Celebration and Meets Princess Eugenie

Representatives from Bright Horizons Family Solutions recently attended the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents’ (RoSPA) centenary celebration, held at Buckingham Palace on May 25th.

Health and Safety Officer Amanda Woods and Laura Woods, Nursery Manager at Campus Kids Guildford nursery, were invited to attend the celebration after Bright Horizons was, last month, confirmed as a recipient of the RoSPA Gold Medal Award for the sixth consecutive year.

It was also a special day for Bright Horizons health and safety mascot Candy Floss, who received royal approval from Princess Eugenie of York. Candy Floss is a blue and green striped zebra, created and named by Bright Horizons nursery children to spread the message about keeping everyone safe. Staff use Candy Floss to help children learn to recognise risk and embed safety messages.

“We were delighted to be invited by RoSPA to attend its centenary year celebration at Buckingham Palace,” said Amanda Woods. “We are a very proud recipient of the RoSPA Gold Medal Award for the sixth year running and it shows our continued commitment to safety throughout our work environments.”

RoSPA is a family-safety charity committed to accident prevention and thus the reduction of injuries. It has been at the heart of accident prevention across the UK and around the world since 1917.
