it's a 'bear tRAil 4 NRAS' - Fundraising for NRAS 10th Birthday

Hi everyone

I am back with my next challenge! Well, I use the word 'challenge' loosely ... but, after all, I did have to come up with all the names and visit the Build a Bear Workshop to build the bear!

it's a 'bear tRAil 4 NRAS'

My curly furry friend is special. I chose her, stuffed her, dressed her and brought her to life and now she needs a home. She will be sent to her new home along with her carry home box and birth certificate. The winning name will be announced no later than 31st July 2011, much earlier if you all choose to be very generous!

Date of Birth: 25 April 2011

Height: 41 centimetres

Weight: 340 grams

Fur colour: Light Brown

Eye Colour: Brown

Name: you choose!

For a donation of £2.00 you can join my bear tRAil. Through a forest of names chose the one you think 'fits' the bear. Please let me know your choice of name/s when making your donation or alternatively on this blog on the HU site, via the NRAS forum, or by personal message/email. I will regularly update the appropriate pages. Your donation can be made through Just Giving and all payments will go directly to NRAS who can benefit from ‘Gift Aid’ by using the payment methods on their page.

All donations are very much appreciated. Thank you everyone for your generous support.

Hi Mandy

Thank you for your kind donation. The bears are so cute (you can even pick one with an expression that suits you!) and the outfits you can get are lovely, making it so difficult to choose. You are welcome to have as many goes as you wish :)

List updated. Thanks again
