Teddies Galore!

What a fantastic turn out! Teddy bears arrived thick and fast and despite some apprehension they all managed to complete the jump. Indeed,  some enjoyed it so much they kept coming back for more! Some had the slight embarrassment of being lodged in a tree for a while, but our expertly trained rescue crew soon brought them safely down. One Teddy - 'Pinky Bear' - was found the following day in Motts garden. Please get in touch if he is your bear, in the mean time we will look after him.

If your Teddy didn't receive a certificate on the day then please get in touch and we will issue him with one. During the afternoon 330 Teddy jumps took place. This, together with the sponsorship raised by some of the more enterprising Teddies (Red Ted 250, Ivan The Terrible 120 and many more), raised 785.  Add this to the balloon launch, the cake stall,  the Tower tours and the 50 raised by 8 year old Camilla Brisley on her Table-Top sale, makes the total raised during the week to just under 2,000. Many thanks to all that helped in any way. It has been a wonderful week, culminating in an afternoon that was full of good humour.
