The kiddie signs are outside Holy Trinity school and Dimplewell school both in Ossett.

SAY HELLO TO CUDDLES!

Wakefield

We now have a mascot for SCARD - he has a little SCARD t- shirt and on Facebook we asked people to name him. We then put all the names into a box and picked one out - and he is now ‘Cuddles’ which we think is a great name for our mascot. He is always at our events and sits in the SCARD office throughout the day when he is not busy at events!
