Bring Your Bear week | Action Medical Research

Touching Lives - June 2007

Bring Your Bear week

Bring Your Bear is a key event in our calendar, helping us to raise money for our Touching Tiny Lives campaign, and has raised a magnificent £300,000 since 2003. Last year’s event made over £80,000, and we’re hoping to do even better this year!

We’ve had a tremendous response from schools, nurseries, children’s clubs and companies across the UK, who have pledged to raise funds to help our work while enjoying themselves at the same time.

Some of the fun ideas that have proved successful in past years include bear hunts, designing a new hat for Paddington, baking cakes and biscuits, adopt a bear, mufti days — the list goes on. And, of course, where would we be on Bring Your Bear day without a Teddy Bears’ Picnic?

We’d love to hear how your Bring Your Bear day went — please send your pictures and emails to
