In celebration of our anniversary year, we have commissioned our very own ‘Anniversary Bear’ and are encouraging all our friends, family and supporters to get as creative as they can to raise money in support of our work.

By purchasing an anniversary bear for £10 and pledging to raise just £40 you will be supporting children, young people and families in your community.

There are lots of different ways you might have fun with your bear and raise funds for BCCS.  Here are some ideas:

  • Hold your very own teddy bears' picnic to support BCCS.
  • Set up a fundraising page and ask all your friends and family to donate.
  • Take a bear on your travels and get him sponsored for the journey.
  • If you are a member of a club or group, what about nominating your BCCS as your club mascot for the year?
  • Why not suggest a name the bear competition with friends or family?

Our Head of Voluntary Income, Julie and her friends have decided to name their bear 'Columbus' after the famous adventurer and will be challenging him to travel 40,000 miles around the world during the year. By setting up an on-line fundraising page they hope to raise £400! 

You can have as much fun and be as creative as you like but make sure you let us know what your bear has been up to! Email us here with photos and stories of your bear.
