Ambulance mascot2 children are being asked to do some blue sky thinking to find a name for Yorkshire Air ’s new mascot.

Pupils at primary schools throughout Yorkshire are being asked to enter a special competition to name the new helicopter mascot. The move follows the retirement of Bernie Bear who was the face of the independent for ten years.

The competition winner – who will be announced on June 21 – will get a trip for them and their family to the YAA’s base at /Bradford Airport plus a hoodie and goody bag.

Abby McClymont, YAA Marketing and Communications Manager, said:

We love our new mascot but it doesn’t have a name. So, we’re asking all our young supporters to come up with some suggestions.

It can be a boy or girl’s name, but needs to be something original and memorable. And, whatever name is chosen, our mascot will be kept very busy over the coming months at shows, fetes and events throughout the region.

The competition closing date is June 14 and all entries should be sent to the YAA at Cayley House, 10 South Lane, Elland HX5 0HQ

Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a rapid response emergency service to five million people across Yorkshire – England’s largest region. It needs to raise £9,900 each day to keep its two helicopters in the air and maintained.
