Kirkcaldy additional needs charity names new mascot Bubble after suggestions pour in from kids across the Kingdom

After several weeks of deliberation and hundreds of suggestions from kids across the Kingdom, additional needs charity, Nourish, have finally chosen a name for its new mascot.

Monday, 3rd May 2021, 3:39 pm

Bubble the Bear, was chosen as the mascot’s new name after four-year-old Finley Redpath from Dunfermline submitted his entry.

Lynne Scott, Nourish manager, said: “Our competition ran for a few weeks and we had lots of lovely names suggested to us including Honey, Blitz, and Marshmallow.

"We had a huge selection of names to choose from and our new bear chose his favourite, Bubble, suggested by four-year-old Finley Redpath from Dunfermline.

"We invited Finley along to meet Bubble last weekend, and Bubble had some small gifts for Finley to say thank you for choosing such a great name for him.”

With the money raised to buy the new mascot, Nourish smashed its original target and is now on the hunt for a second mascot to keep Bubble company.“Bubble is loving his home at Nourish Support Centre, but is a little lonely when we all go home at night so we are trying to find a friend for him,” Lynne added.

"We will be using Bubble to help explain additional needs to kids, and to teach them to not be scared to ask questions about additional needs or disabilities.

“We want to thank everyone who sent us messages and wrote to us to help Bubble choose his new name.”

Nourish is also preparing to open its doors to its family groups on May 17, with its Monday Club, for adults with additional needs, re-opening the week after on May 24.
