Meet Our Mascot 2017-10-27T09:13:15+00:00

Meet Derby Hospitals Charity Mascot…Lambie!

Here at Derby Hospitals Charity we are very lucky to have our very own mascot! Lambie has only been with us a short time but has already made a big impact around the hospital and always makes people smile.

“Hi! My name is Lambie and I am the mascot for Derby Hospitals Charity!

My journey with the charity started when I was training to run for the Derby Ramathon. I tripped on the treadmill and managed to sprain my arm and break a leg.

Being in hospital was not scary and I had lots of visits from my family, especially my cousins Rammie and Ewie. They like to take me on trips to their home at the Pride Park stadium.

After staying in hospital for a little while, and seeing all the important work that Derby Hospitals Charity does for the hospital, I volunteered to be their mascot to help them spread the news about all the good work that they do and all the amazing support they get from fundraisers.

As their mascot, I can’t wait to get out in the community and help out wherever I can – hospital visits, charitable functions, events…I’d love to come to them all!

So that’s who I am. Be sure to come and say hello if you see me around! Although I don’t say much – or anything for that matter – I always enjoy high fives and hugs from supporters!

I can’t wait to meet you all!”

Lambie has his own section in our Exchange magazine following his adventures around Derby so be sure to pick up a copy soon.

If you would like Lambie to attend an event, you must be fundraising for Derby Hospitals Charity. He is unable to attend any events not fundraising for our charity. Please give as much notice as possible when inviting Lambie to an event.
