Two murals have been designed by a Lake District brand for the Westmorland General Hospital.

Herdy has designed and sponsored the installation of the murals at the Kendal hospital's Urgent Treatment Centre.

Collaborating with the hospital, Herdy has tailored the designs for the children's waiting area and treatment room.

Herdy co-founder, Diane Hannah said: "Herdy’s motto is to make ewe smile, and if we can help children smile when they come into the hospital, nothing would make us happier."

The children’s waiting area's mural illustrates Herdy's adventures in the Lake District.

The artwork also honours Westmorland General's life-savers, featuring paramedics, doctors, nurses, and emergency responders.

The children’s treatment room mural shows a Herdy nurse greeting young patients with a smile and continues Herdy's adventures in the lakes through an ‘open’ window.

The murals were installed to coincide with Random Acts of Kindness Day on February 17.

The initiative encourages spreading kindness within the community.

Last year, to celebrate the NHS's 75th anniversary, Herdy launched a special edition NHS mug and tea towel.

Sales of these products have so far raised more than £3500 for the NHS Bay Hospitals Charity.

Ms Hannah added: "We had great fun creating the design and collaborating with the hospital team, in particular Freyja Burrill, who works at the unit.

"Freyja had sketched some initial designs for our first meeting and had some great ideas around all the fun and games Herdy could be getting up to.”

Ms Burrill added: "They are so beautiful.

"Thanks to Herdy for the design and sponsoring all of this, it’s had such a lovely and positive impact on all of our staff and patients already, and given the department a face lift and morale boost too."
