Benenden Bear Bonanza!

Teddies from Benenden1

It was a bear bonanza at YLF on Monday, when Jane Barlow from Benenden Hospital Trust, handed over her donation of 250 miniature ‘Benenden Bear’ teddies to staff and trustees!

The bears were a gift from Benenden Hospital, in Cranbrook, who discovered them when an old, redundant building was emptied. The hospital asked it’s Facebook followers to nominate good causes and our very own member of staff, Sarah, did just that! Now, the bears can find new homes before Christmas!

The teddies will be a part of our Christmas goody bags that we will be handing out to each of our children we support. A little donation goes a long way and we are sure our youngsters will be delighted to give the teddies a new home! This is a great contribution to our Christmas fundraiser – please read more here!

A huge thank you to Benenden Hospital for the donation and to Sarah for allowing this all to happen! Christmas certainly feels like it has come early this year!
