Raising funds for Leeds Children's Hospital

The free event will benefit the whole community, with hundreds and thousands of Leeds residents and visitors expected to join in the
fun. This exciting project will also enable Leeds Hospitals Charity to raise vital money for Leeds Children’s Hospital, funding much-needed equipment and technology to provide the best care possible for very ill babies and children in a comfortable environment.

£10 could buy arts & crafts, £25 could help fund a play specialist and £50 could go towards research.

Why Bears?

Pupils from Alwoodley Primary School pose with Hero Bear at the Leeds Bear Hunt Launch

Leeds Hospitals Charity is working in partnership with Walker Productions/Lupus Films, the production team behind the stunning animation based on Michel Rosen’s best-selling children’s book, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, published by Walker Books.

The Bear sculptures are inspired by the Bear from the award-winning TV animation and have been commissioned and created just for Leeds.

The message of this wonderful story is about how we deal with our fears. This is reflected in the experience of many children in hospital, who might be scared of the unknown, or possibly the knowledge of what is to come.

With the money raised by Leeds Bear Hunt, we can really make a difference and build on NHS funding to create a Leeds Children’s Hospital that is a welcoming and reassuring place, with a hospital team that is equipped to support children and families facing their own "Bear".

Our sleuth of Bears will be auctioned off on Thursday 28th September to raise vital funds for Leeds Children’s Hospital.
