Charity needs a new mascot
5:20pm Friday 18th October 2013 in News
A CHARITY that has raised more than £3 million for Halton and Warrington hospitals during the past 10 years has been given a new look.
Warrington and Halton Hospitals Charity is holding a variety of events and fundraising activities, and has joined forces with the Warrington Guardian to ask children to help design a new mascot.
Chris Horner, the hospitals’ associate director for communication, said: “The charity raises valuable funds for hospital equipment and services.
“Donations enable the hospitals to fast-track the purchase of vital equipment, and to provide services for patient wellbeing which may not otherwise be possible.
“Projects the charity is funding range from support for the hospital’s neonatal unit and children’s wards to supporting older patients with dementia.”
Children aged up to 16 are invited to submit their ideas for the new mascot with the chance to win some goodies and see their design come to life.
Children can draw, paint or just describe their mascot.
Chris added: “There are no real rules around what the mascot might be, we will leave that to your imagination.
“The charity logo features a brightly coloured tree so you might want to think of something that fits in with that or that is hospital related.
“It also needs to be a design that can be made into an outfit.”
The Guardian will be helping to judge the winners along with doctors and nurses from the hospital To enter, download a form from warringtonguardian.co.uk or whhcharity.org.uk or collect one from the front desk at Halton Hospital or Warrington Hospital. The closing date for entries is November 8.
