Build a bear for charity this weekend
Visit a Build-A-Bear Workshop this weekend and make a bear for a Barnardo's child
No child should go without a friend at Christmas, which is why this weekend, the first 70 visitors to Build-A-Bear Workshops can make a bear for free to be donated to a Barnardo's child in the local community.
You and your tot can take part in donating 7,000 bears to children. You can even fill your name in on a gift tag to personalise it for a child and add a special purple heart to the bear to donate an extra £1 to the Barnardo's Young Carers' programme, which supports children who have adult responsibilities looking after sick or disabled relatives.
The Workshop will also be donating and sending furry friends to the Barnardo's Young Carers' programme to spread some festive cheer.
Why not make a Charlie Brown bear for a child this Christmas, or even take your tot along to design one?
