“Some of the children don’t have a lot of things to play with at home, or have come from chaotic backgrounds, so being able to give them a bear of their own is a great thing.

“We would like to say a massive thank you to Build-A-Bear for their wonderful donation.” Pictured are children’s service practitioners Su Wright, Gemma Starr and Matthew Mitchell and service centre manager Sue Whitwood.
