A little intro from Tara, host of The Gallery, about this week’s theme:
This week I’m dedicating the Gallery to an amazing young boy.
Sporty 10-year-old Finlay Church was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour last year. An aggressive tumour that’s rare in children and mean he’s been through an awful lot for one so very young.
To say thank you for the treatment he’s having at the hands of everyone at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, he has been raising funds.
To date his has raised £17,000. A 10 year old! Now he wants to break a new Guinness World Record. He doesn’t want to stop thanking the people who are helping him.
So Fin is aiming to break the world record for the most teddy bears in a row (he needs more than 4,000) which he will be going for on May 3. And now he’s on the biggest bear hunt ever!
You can read all about his attempt and his fundraising on Facebook and at Operation Teddy Bear, but in the meantime the theme for this week’s Photo Gallery is: Show me your Teddy Bear.
So, here I am with some of my collection of Teddy Bears. Meet Rosie Rabbit, Eeyore, Tigger, Monkey & Big Ted! I’m not ashamed to say that I snuggle with them while I’m sleeping too, they reside in my bed quite happily and I take some of them with me even when I go away! I’m just a big kid!
So let’s see your Teddy, or Teddies! It’s all for a good cause, so swamp social media with them!
