The Kinship “Foster” Carers Group has teamed up with Grandparents
Plus to raise money for kinship carers by transporting a giant teddy bear
on an epic relay journey around England and Wales.
The teddy is currently training in Kent as he prepares for his journey,
which starts in Northampton on 27 December. He’ll then travel the
country using various modes of transport – and we need volunteers from all over England and Wales to get involved, take
teddy on a local tour, take pictures if you can, then deliver him safe and sound to his next chauffeur or minder.

Every £2 raised takes the teddy 1 mile - the planned route is 1,600 miles which gives us a target of £3,200. All money raised will be split 50/50 between the KFCG and Grandparents Plus.
