Cuddle up for Christmas

Beau by Alison Bailey Smith
Cuddle up for Christmas.

King Panda from his nearby kingdom in Bear-kenhead is inviting bears from all over the world (or all parts of Wirral) to a grand reunion for Christmas to be held in the Momentary Art Project's unit in Marine Point New Brighton (between Starbucks and Subway). The last great bear gathering was held in Canada in the late 90s in Al-bear-ta and King Panda thought it was high time for a cuddly reunion and realised that Marine Point in New Brighton might be the place to meet for a paw-fect get together. Santa Bear will be dropping in from Sydney (Sydney St Birkenhead.


The Momentary Art Project Christmas display for 2014 will raise funds and awareness for the local charity, Amy and Friends, is a charity dedicated to the support of Cockayne Syndrome sufferers and their families from around the globe. 

MAP would like to invite you to deliver a decorated or dressed Teddy Bear on Saturday December the 6th from 10.30am to 1.30pm to the MAP unit to represent your business, school or family with a donation (minimum £1). If you are Bearless and can’t bear it, bear with us because it is also possible to sponsor one of the resident bears. Each guest bear will bear a tag with the owners name and contact details on the reverse, so hopefully all beloved toys will be returned to their home. 

After Christmas in January, the visiting Teddy Bears will be returned to their owners. Those which have been donated will be given to Amy and Friends to raise funds for the charity. King Panda will head for Mount Primary School hoping to find a permanent cuddling partner when the school raffles him in February, with all proceeds again going to the charity.
