OXFORD MAIL - May 2010

Children’s Hospital fundraiser Penny Hambridge said the children were overjoyed at their special transatlantic gift. She said, “I think it really gives them something positive
to associate being in hospital with and to remember the experience in a more positive
light. Having something cuddly and fluffy to hold onto can really make a difference. They were over the moon with the gifts.”


Diane Lembert from Bear Givers said, "We are so delighted to visit Oxford Children's Hospital again with so many smiling faces, both old and new, to greet us. We give over 50,000 teddy bears every year to hospitals across the world; to see the children's faces light up when the teddy bears arrive is the best thanks we can get."
