    Sheffield Hospitals Charity Mascot

    I have the best job in the Charity. I get to bring joy to people across Sheffield. If people see me out and about, they can’t help but smile and wave. I was created as part of a competition with schools across Sheffield by a girl called Isabelle. She’s so clever! Isabelle says I’m a caring cat of all colours to look after everyone and that I wear a rainbow cape to celebrate our NHS superheroes.

    Guess what? Isabelle based my creation on her own ginger cat.
