Paddington Bear | Action Medical Research

Paddington Bear™

Paddington Bear has been at the heart of fundraising for Action Medical Research ever since his creator, Michael Bond, met the charity’s founder, Duncan Guthrie, in 1976. Paddington Bear always likes to help wherever he can and so, after chatting over the matter with Mr Bond, he agreed to support Action Medical Research as the charity’s official mascot. Paddington Bear’s friendly face has helped us attract thousands of new supporters who together have raised millions of pounds to help babies and children. Find out more about how Paddington Bear has been helping his favourite UK charity.

Do we need to include copyright information when talking about Paddington?

Yes. When we use an image of Paddington, we need to make sure that we include the correct copyright information as well as including a TM symbol at the end of his name the first time this is used in a piece of writing. The Communications Team can help you with this - please contact Paige is you need help with this.
