Russell Bear mascot- charity donation 2019

Did you know we donate a character costume to a good cause once a year?
Forget Me not Children’s hospice is based in West Yorkshire, and we were really happy to be able to work with them to bring their mascot to life!
Russell bear has a half fur body with a purple branded hoodie, with the hospices’ logo on the front and his name on the back. Curly teddy bear fur works really well for a mascot and creates a lovely cuddly, approachable bear character costume, and ambassador for the hospice. He has indoor/outdoor soled feet with removable fur covers. His cute bear tail finishes him off perfectly!

PLEASE NOTE: This specific costume is not for sale or hire. It is subject to copyright and is here for your inspiration only.


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?
