Donate a Bear

You can donate an affordable, brand new bear through our Amazon wish list. It will be sent direct to us, and we’ll find it a child to hug as soon as we can (these are particularly good for hospitals and hospices as they will only accept new bears).

Alternatively, if you already have a bear looking for a good home, please emailĀ tatty@bearnecessities.org.uk.

We accept clean teddies (ideally bears but other animals are good at giving hugs too), as long as they’re in really good condition (these end up as gifts after all) and don’t contain any squeakers or electrical bits and pieces (we can’t wash those), but above all: cuddly. Nothing too gimmicky or branded as we need to appeal to a multi-cultural audience. If in doubt drop us a line and ask.

At the moment we’re taking pre-loved bears fairly locally, but we hope to be able to provide some way of allowing courier postage from further afield in the near future.

Bear with us, and watch this space.
