Bring Your Bestie to a Picnic
11am – 4pm, Saturday 15th June 2019
If you go down to The Gracechurch Centre on Saturday 15th June, you’re in for a big surprise! It’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic!
Gather your little teddy bears for a tasty picnic in our woodland glade from 11am – 4pm, where they can make their own teddy bear sandwiches and enjoy a drink and a snack.
With face painting (to complete their teddy bear disguise), balloons and giant teddy bears for photos, they’re sure to have a lovely time – and it’s all in aid of Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Great Ormond Street!
Join us for One Great Day of ‘funraising’ as we try to raise as much as we can for these worthy causes!
