On Wednesday 13th June, Kirsty, Laura, Sharon, Karen, Ann, Katie, Mike & Julian from Ruby’s Fund hosted the Teddy Bears Picnic supported by Congleton Town Council. Luckily it didn’t rain and we were able to use Congleton Park for the event. Around 350 children and their grown ups came down with their picnics and teddy bears.
The event was supported by The Mayor of Congleton Susie Ackers Smith, local Town Councillors and of course we were visited by two bears who appeared from the woods!
The children enjoyed music and dance session with Helen Tang of Tiddly Boppers and Rhythm Time. Congleton Childrens Centre and One You also had stalls to entertain the children and grown ups and Congleton Library did a story time.
The Teddy Bear hospital run by Nurse Sharon proved to be a great hit with the children and Karen our volunteer was kept busy on the sensory wall.
