Our Children

Be Brave Bears is a charitable organisation run by volunteers who send personalised keepsake bears to children who are terminally ill or have life limiting conditions. Each of our bears is sponsored by businesses, groups or families, meaning these bears are free of charge to the children. Once complete each bear is placed in a special keepsake bag and given to the child complete with a numbered certificate. Once the child has received their bear the sponsor will receive a thank you photograph via e-mail of the completed bear and a sponsorship certificate with the name of the child who you have sponsored. Each bear is allocated a number and will appear on our Roll of Honour. If the child on this page has already been sponsored, but due to the timing of the previous sponsorship it has not yet been removed from this area, your sponsorship will be automatically allocated to the child next on the list (Priority order). This seldom happens but we must highlight that it can occur.

A bit about Charlie Beresford...

Charlie is incredibly cheeky he has a wicked sense of humour, he loves his special soft toys - some days it is hard to tell there is much wrong with Charlie but on bad days he can barely talk - he takes great comfort cuddles and soothes himself with a comforter - Charlie loves playing his video games because online he is just a normal boy - he is so brave and never complains
