Meet AR26's Mascot!

We asked young people across Scotland aged 17 and under to channel their Neil Buchanan Art Attack skills and design the VIP face of AR26 Charity and they did not disappoint.


The winning entry came from Amy Elrick, Primary Six pupil at Neilston Primary School in East Renfrewshire.



We were delighted to say a huge thank you and congratulations to Amy in the presence of her class and teachers and reveal the winning entry.


Gerard Curley, Head Teacher at Neilston Primary School said:


“We are delighted by Amy’s success in the mascot competition and that her artistic talents are being recognised by AR26 Charity. We were so keen for our pupils to participate in this competition as the charity’s vision and mission are so important to young people. AR26’s values of respect, honesty and ambition mirror three of our six values at Neilston Primary, and we also share the desire to put a smile of the faces of children in these tough times.


Amy demonstrates the school and the charities values and I cannot think of a better winner of the mascot competition. We hope the charity continues to grow and thrive and we are glad that Neilston Primary can play a small part in your work”.


Amanda Nisanci, Head of Partnerships at AR26 Charity said:


“We were overwhelmed by the number of entries and the amazing talent of young people across Scotland and would like to thank everyone who entered. Amy’s design was a firm favourite with our founder Andy Robertson and the judging panel and we are delighted to showcase it for the first time and pass on huge congratulations and thanks to Amy. As a charity with young people at the heart of everything we do, it was only fitting that our mascot was designed by a young person.”
