Teddy Bob helps Ron­ald

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By NI­COLE BAX­TER

A gi­ant teddy bear has teamed up with Porirua New World to raise funds for the Ron­ald McDon­ald House re­build in New­town.

‘‘Teddy Bob’’, who be­longs to the Ron­ald McDon­ald House and sur­vived the de­mo­li­tion, has since been in the care of Shirley Love and her hus­band.

‘‘It was a good op­por­tu­nity to raise money – and it’s a good cause,’’ said Mrs Love, a New World staff mem­ber.

For the past two weeks Teddy Bob has been sitting by the exit of New World Porirua, col­lect­ing spare change from shop­pers.

In the first week, $260 was raised.

Mrs Love said Thorn­don New World would prob­a­bly use Bob next so it too could raise money.

Teddy Bob is avail­able to bor­row for any busi­ness who would like to raise funds for Ron­ald McDon­ald House.
