Gallery: Teddies gather for charity picnic
WOODBRIDGE: Kind-hearted youngsters were allowed to bring some VIP guests into school for a fundraising feast in aid of charity.
Pupils of Queen’s House, the pre-preparatory school for Woodbridge School, organised a teddy bears’ picnic for East Anglia Children’s Hospices’ (EACH) Treehouse Appeal.
The four to six-year-olds were accompanied by their favourite cuddly toy and had a bear-friendly lunch of honey sandwiches and buns.
They were joined by beekeeper, Dee Alderson, who brought along a beehive and explained to children and teddies alike where honey comes from.
Every bear who joined their owner was asked to make a donation to the EACH appeal, while the charity also supplied a large teddy which the children were asked to name in exchange for a contribution to the cause.
