The charity, which is a family support centre for people with additional needs, found its new bear mascot whilst out walking in the woods close to its headquarters in Kirkcaldy.

In usual Nourish charitable fashion, the group adopted him and is calling for kids in the town to give the big cuddly bear a fitting name.

Lynne Scott, centre manager, said: “He was a sad bear living alone in the woods near our support centre. He was out for a walk one day and met some new friends – myself, Caroline and Rebecca - we invited him to come and live in Nourish and to be our mascot.

"He was really cold and hungry, so we made sure he was fed and we gave him some new clothes as his old ones were all tattered.

"Sadly, he has no name so we would like all the boys and girls in Kirkcaldy to help choose a name for him.

“Boys and girls can write to us at the address below, or they can ask their parents to help email us or send us a message on Facebook. We will accept name suggestions until the end of April.”
