Don't miss out on 'Bearilliant' party to help sick children

25 February 2004

Leading charity Action Medical Research is calling on schools and children’s groups to join the biggest ever ‘Bring Your Bear’ party between 21st and 25th June. The Charity hopes over 1000 schools, guide groups and brownie and cub packs will join the fun and organise events to raise over £125,000 to help sick children. Action Medical Research wants people to bring their bears to school and work to help celebrate Paddington Bear’s Birthday. ‘Bring Your Bear’ is an enjoyable, easy and educational way to support the Charity. There are lots of ‘bearilliant’ activities and there are also bears and badges to be won. ‘Big Brother’ presenter Davina McCall says, ‘Being a mother of two, I can see the important part Action Medical Research plays in helping babies and young children. So whatever you do, don’t miss out on the fun. Take part in ‘Bring You Bear’ and help raise money for a worthwhile cause.’ Val Richards, Head Teacher at Seaton House School in Surrey says, ‘ Our school took part in Bring Your Bear 2003 and it was a really fun day for everyone involved. We will definitely be taking part again in 2004 – it’s one of the highlights of the school year!’ {bold}There are lots of ‘bearilliant’ money raising ideas in the fundraising and information pack.
