MR URDD is everywhere you look in Denbigh this week - even as a cover for prosthetic legs.

Denbighshire-based LIMB-art has created a prosthetic leg cover to celebrate 100 years of the youth organisation which is staging its eisteddfod on the outskirts of the town this week.

The design, featuring the Urdd's mascot, was created by Sean Mason and Mark Williams, who founded LIMB-art which specialises in creating artistic and colourful designs to cover prosthetic limbs.

Mark said: "I have always loved Mr Urdd.

"As a company based near Denbigh, we overlook the Mr Urdd sign on the mountain and all our team are fluent Welsh.

"We could not let it pass (the) 100 years anniversary without doing a tribute leg cover, which we have been working on for the last few months."


LIMB-art was founded in 2018 by former Paralympic swimmer and medallist Mark Williams and his wife Rachael.

It was born out of an overwhelming desire to help other prosthetic users raise their confidence, be proud of what they have and very simply, but equally importantly have fun showing off whilst doing so!

On his history with the Urdd Eisteddfod, Mark added: "I did dawnsio gwerin in Ysgol Dewi Sant about age eight.

"We made it to the semi finals down in Maesteg!"
