Teddies turn out for a picnic
by Tom Martin

YOUNGSTERS have been able to share a picnic with their favourite teddy bear as part of a fundraiser organised by Jospice.

It was held at the Thornton-based facility and gave families the opportunity to see and support a range of stalls, a tombola and other attractions.

But the highlight of the teddy bear-themed day was a picnic, parade and also a competition to find the best cuddly toys in a number of categories, including best dressed, most unusual and the oldest looking teddy.

Pat Murphy, Director of Fundraising & Communications at Jospice said: “A rather damp start to the Jospice teddy bears picnic this year, but never the less a large varied and well dressed line up of teddies turned up at Jospice with their owners.

”The parade of teddies was the highlight of the day, all carried around the hospice building for the patients, staff and visitors to see, and then past the judges.“
