‘Bear Miles for Breakthroughs’ appeal

Action’s mascot, Paddington Bear™, has returned from his travels across the UK, visiting four children’s hospitals. During his 775 mile trip, he has helped to bring smiles to the faces of some sick children as well as meet with some of the amazing researchers who Action is funding.

London Paddington Station

To mark the launch of the appeal, the marmalade-loving bear was waved off at Paddington Station, the very spot where he was found almost 56 years ago.

Brighton

5 August

Paddington’s first stop on his ‘Bear Miles for Breakthroughs’ tour was sunny Brighton.

He visited The Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, and even found time to dip his paws in to the sea at Brighton beach!

Paddington's next stop on his tour was Newcastle-upon-Tyne, famous for its love of football. Next he heads to the Great North Children’s Hospital to meet everyone there.

Cambridge

Our mascot then continued his tour with a trip to the beautiful city of Cambridge, where he met with children at Addenbrooke’s Children’s Hospital. After a quick punt on the river, followed by a picnic of marmalade sandwiches, Paddington is back on the road heading for the final stop on his ‘Bear Miles for Breakthroughs’ tour.

Oxford

Paddington reached his final destination on his tour in the ancient city of Oxford, where he met with sick children at the John Radcliffe Children’s Hospital.
