Introducing Ernie the Owl!

Meet our new mascot!

We launched Ernie, our new Mascot, in collaboration with Child Friendly Leeds at our Charity Canal Challenge on Sunday 14th July 2019!

Following an overwhelming victory in our Facebook poll, the people of Yorkshire voted for the new Leeds Cares mascot to be an owl

As a symbol of wisdom, the Leeds Cares owl represents the continuous learning that happens every single day at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

“Ernie” was the winning suggestion from our naming competition – put forward by 8 year old Mille Baldaro-Booth, from Roundhay St John’s School.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to Town Centre Securities for kindly sponsoring Ernie.
