    • How tall is our Little Bear?

      The little bear is just over 1m tall in height

    • Will the Bears of Sheffield still take place?

      Here at The Children’s Hospital Charity we are all working hard to ensure we deliver the Bears of Sheffield. The Bears of Sheffield will be a celebration of the wonderful place we call home and together we will be out on the streets enjoying walking, running, cycling and even skipping along the trail, finding all the wonderfully painted bears along the way. We still plan to launch the trail in July ready for the summer holidays and if anything changes, we will keep you up to date. 

    • What if we can’t get our fundraising in on time?

      Please do not worry, we are extending the deadline to get your fundraising in until the end of the summer term. 

      The coronavirus outbreak is unprecedented and we understand it may be a very worrying time. Fundraising may not be at the top of your priority list right now, but Sheffield Children’s Hospital remains open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and still needs all our support more than ever. 

    • How long do we have to decorate our bear?

      Little Bears can currently still be collected at the end of March. However due to the school closures we will hold then in our warehouse for when the schools reopen. When we know more of when the schools will reopen, we will find a date which works for everyone. We want to give all of our schools as much time as possible to paint and decorate them.

      If you need any help contact

    • When will we find out where our bear will be on the trail?

      Unfortunately, we can’t give an exact date but you will know as soon as we do!

    • How do we decorate and varnish the bear?

      You can find everything you need to know over on Twinkl’s resources which you’ll have been sent via our e-newsletter, to sign up to the newsletter just follow this link: 

    • How do we get our bear?

      Because we have 100 Little Bears in total, it sadly isn’t possible for us to deliver them all directly to the schools, so we ask the schools themselves to come and pick up their bear from our special warehouse! Location and date TBC

    • When will we get our bear back?

      We are still planning a Little Bears Farewell event but due Covid-19 dates are currently a bit up in the air. We will give you as much information as soon as we can.
