AN ARTISTIC youngster from Weston has designed a logo to aid a fostering campaign.

Fostering fortnight, which began on Monday and continues until June 14, now has a new look in North Somerset.

Material used by the North Somerset Council fostering team will now include the design of 12-year-old Ellis Haine.

The fostering team held a competition for looked-after children and for foster carers’ own children, asking them to design a picture reflecting what fostering means to them.

A council spokesman said: “Judging was tough and Ellis Haine’s picture was chosen as the striking design was felt to capture family life.

“North Somerset Council is the corporate parent to 225 children at the moment and more foster carers are urgently needed to provide loving homes.”
