21 Famous Names ~ 21 Pairs of Jeans ~ 22 Fabulous Bears!
The Great Teddy Bear Project featured 22 uniquely crafted teddy bears, each made from a pair of jeans donated by famous names from the worlds of music, food, TV and even from the far reaches of Space!
Handmade by Canterbury Bears each bear is embroidered with the celebrity’s autograph. Tim Peake’s bear even includes a key fob that travelled with him to the
International Space Station!
The project was organised in support of Together for Short Lives, the UK’s leading charity for the 99,000 children with a life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families.
The fabulous project hero image – depicting all 21 of the denim donors – was specially created by the actor and author Charlie Higson. A limited edition print of the picture,
signed by Higson, will be included in the sweepstake that will run on Charity Stars alongside the main auction.
