WORSHIPPERS have been taking teddy bears around the world to help raise hundreds of pounds for their church.

WORSHIPPERS have been taking teddy bears around the world to help raise hundreds of pounds for their church.

Christians from the United Reformed Church in Stowmarket and nearby Mendlesham and Stowupland have been taking the cute creatures on holiday to locations including Australia, Canada, South Africa, India and China.

Although how one of them apparently ended up on the surface of the moon is not clear!

The bears have also been abseiling and even photographed at the Eiffel Tower as church-goers bought them for £5 and then entered their pictures in interesting and unusual locations into the church competition to win anything from chocolates to books.

In all more than £300 was raised from the imaginative and fun fundraiser recently.
