The Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway has teamed up with Ullswater Steamers to invite youngsters in Cumbria, Lancashire and the North East to design a brand new t-shirt for their mascots Ratty and Sammy.

The two attractions in the Lake District are looking for designs for the new item of clothing that explore ideas of nature, landscape, boats and trains. Ratty is the loveable water vole from Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway and Sammy is a native Red Squirrel from Ullswater Steamers.

The winner will see their design printed onto t-shirts that Ratty and Sammy will wear.

The winners and shortlisted design entries will receive a free Family ticket to one of the attractions to enjoy a family day out.

To enter the competition, designers must be aged between 5 – 15 years old. The closing date is Thursday 30 April 2020.

For more details on how to enter, please see their website https://www.ullswater-steamers.co.uk/news/

What did the officials say?

Rachel Bell, Head of Marketing & Development for both attractions comments.

‘We are looking for fun creative ideas from young people that explore the habitats of our mascots and their favourite attraction. Both animals were chosen to be our mascots because they are native to Cumbria. We work with local conservation charities National Trust, Lake District Foundation to help raise awareness and funds to protect the very specials environments which our attractions are part of. Our mascots love having a selfie taken and visitors will be able to see them at our attractions at various events across the year. I can’t wait to see the designs that come in!’
