Meet the Elephants
In 2019, the children and young people living with our fostering families were given the opportunity to name and characterise our beloved mascots – The Bumpy Elephants…
Nellie is a grown up elephant who used to live in a foster home for elephants when she was little. She was often sad and lonely and on her own with no one to play with so now all grown up her special skill is to befriend other little elephants and help them find their smile.
Mellow is happy and relaxed being cared for. Mellow likes to sleep, splash water and roll around. Mellow has a special skill which is reaching deep into the water with his long trunk to get a drink. Mellow’s mum was too poorly to care for Mellow so a new elephant had to give Mellow love and care.
Sadly Freddie‘s ‘s parents weren’t able to look after him and Roger was asked if he could care for him instead until he is an adult and able to look after himself. He loves to play football and tease his foster sister, Frances. Freddie is full of mischief and despite being Autistic, he’s very good at Maths and loves to do sums, although he does have difficulty reading. He’s very caring and will help anyone.
