Our Mascot - Rocco the Donkey

Would you like Rocco to attend your event?

Our larger than life mascot, Rocco the donkey, loves meeting people, especially young carers, who absolutely adore him. 

He’s also met some very famous people, including Jimmy Armfield CBE DL, Dancing on Ice star, Dan Whiston, Corrie’s Lucy Fallon and Gilly from BBC Radio Lancashire.

He is happy to attend fundraising or awareness raising events and school assemblies with members of our support team and spread the word to our local community about all the services available to unpaid carers in Blackpool.

A very special friend of Rocco’s, local journalist Jacqui Morley, wrote about his life and how he became Blackpool Carers’ mascot. You can download Rocco’s Tail by clicking the image on the left.

If you would like Rocco to attend your event, please contact Julie Swift on 01253 393748 or email julie.swift@blackpoolcarers.org giving as much notice as possible.
