How you helped Chil­dren in Need

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Every­body in Bucks was out to help Pud­sey Bear raise as much cash as pos­si­ble for Chil­dren in Need. Here are just some of the events that took place in the area – and didn’t they have fun

ATEAM of yofe­fxaperts teddy bear on a train in the hope he will travel the coun­try and raise cash for Chil­dren In Need.

Sharon Hewitt from Chiltern Re­lo­ca­tion, in Penn Road, Bea­cons­field, came up with the idea fol­low­ing years of fundrais­ing for Chil­dren in Need.

As this year’s fundrais­ing event ap­proached she and her team de­cided to do some­thing dif­fer­ent from the usual cake sales.

So on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 12, they sent Ad­ven­ture Bear on the train from Bea­cons­field to Maryle­bone.

The idea was for peo­ple to take on the bear, take a photo with him and do­nate via the Just­giv­ing page.

A Face­book and Twit­ter ac­count has been set up for Ad­ven­ture Bear, who they hope will raise money for the Chil­dren in Need project.

Mrs Hewitt said: “We just thought we could do some­thing dif­fer­ent this year.”

She added: “It’s al­ready go­ing well he’s been to Birm­ing­ham and in London, we got a call from a man on a train who found him.

“He asked what he was sup­posed to be do­ing with it and I told him he had to take a photo, he wasnt’ keen but said he’d take one for the team. He do­nated £10.”

If you pick up Ad­ven­ture Bear take a pic­ture of him and post it us­ing the hash­tag #WhereIsAd­ven­tureBear or search for Ad­ven­ture Bear on Face­book. Find him on Twit­ter @ Ad­ven­ture_Bear.
