Jenny Powell and Action Research celebrate an un-bear-lievable birthday bash
14 December 1998
ITV television presenter, Jenny Powell, is to be the face of Action Research's fourth Bring Your Bear Week, coinciding with the birthday of the charity's loveable mascot, Paddington Bear.
The ex-children's TV presenter and 'Wheel of Fortune' star will be joining thousands of people across the country for the nationwide event set to take place from June 21 to 25.
Bring Your Bear is a major component of Action Research's £l million campaign for 1999 - Paddington's Suitcase Challenge, led by the well-loved character from Michael Bond's stories.
Paddington's Suitcase Challenge, which will run from March to October 1999 and will be launched both in London and at events all over the UK, will be supported by a range of fundraising activities - national and local - to raise money for childhood diseases. If you would like to know more about the campaign you can obtain a full list of activities from Action Research.
