Russell Bear was our 2019 charity donation for Forget me not children’s hospice in West Yorkshire. We worked with the hospice to create their cute bear mascot based on their plush toy bear. He has soft curly teddy bear fur, and patches where he was been hugged, and repaired.
Russell Bear will work hard for the hospice, and is already a well loved member of the team. Because he is a half fur character, he can be updated with new outfit, or top to keep him up to date with the hospice’s events and plans. He already has a Santa hat already to wear in the lead up to Christmas, so I wonder what he will update his wardrobe with next?
