Harrison Beale & Owen (HB&O) has donated three giant teddies to replace the bear that was being used to raise funds for the Coventry and Warwickshire’s Breast Cancer Unit Appeal but was stolen from the entrance to University Hospital in Walsgrave.

Adela Appleby, head of UHCW – the charity for both hospitals within University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust – “The support of the local community since Sidney [the bear] went missing has been amazing, and we are overwhelmed by this wonderful trio of teddies and very grateful to Harrison Beale & Owen for donating them.”

Phil Ewing, director at HB&O, said: “We hope the trio can help Adela and the team to sell as many tickets for the prize draw as possible.”
