Hospital Mascot to be Designed by Budding Local Artist

Mascot Children Dorset County Hospital

9:27am 17th December 2013

A young artist from Dorchester has won a competition to design a mascot for children's services at Dorset County Hospital.

Mia Briant from Prince Of Wales First School came up with Duncan the Dorset Dinosaur.

Duncan will feature on the hospitals website on the pages that give information to children.

Consultant paediatrician Dr Phil Parslow said the judges had a tough time choosing the winner: "We had some fantastic entries with great ideas for our mascot. We felt that Duncan the Dorset Dinosaur was bright and cheery and will appeal to both boys and girls. He also ties in well with our Jurassic Coast location. Mia did a brilliant job and we are really looking forward to incorporating Duncan into the design of our new web pages."
