You may have seen the new Bearwood Bear at the most recent Bearwood Shuffle. He helped raise over £35 on the day by being raffled off with all of the money collected being donated to the Bearwood Promoters Team for future free live music Bearwood Shuffle events.
Hannah Wood, the very clever crocheter behind Chubby Pink Piggy Creations has made more bears which carry our welovebearwood logo and they are for sale exclusively at Webb’s Walled Gift Shop on Three Shires Oak Road. The small bears cost £12 and the large bears cost £18.
Some of the Bearwood based charities which the Bearwood Bear hopes to raise money for in the future include Smethwick in a Stew, Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust, Warley Woods Community Trust, Bearwood Boys Brigade, Friends of Thimblemill Brook and Friends of Lightwoods Park and House.
However, we would like to know if there are any other local charities which you would like him to support. Please email the details to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hannah's currently taking commissions for other very cute and cuddly soft toys. She’s created all sorts from dragons to giraffes to dogs to zebras but we love the one she created for us recently.
You can contact Hannah through the Chubby Pink Piggy Creations Facebook Page right here, website right here or by popping into Webbs, check out their website right here.
Watch for more Bearwood Bears to be won in a raffle coming soon!
