Event – Teddy Bears’ Picnic 2021
Our teddy bears are having a picnic again this year. Following on from the success of last year’s online Teddy Bears’ Picnic we are hosting our virtual event over the bank holiday weekend of 1st & 2nd May 2021. An Easter card and invitation will be sent to every person in the UK with SMS on our mailing list.
Please make sure your details are up to date for our exciting Springtime activities.
Leading up to, and over the course of the weekend, we’ll be running a number of fully-inclusive online activities that all our family members can dip in and out of.
The aim of the Teddy Bears’ Picnic is to bring our small community together. This year we would love our event to help connect and support more families within their own local regions. The Teddy Bear’s Picnic also provides us with the perfect opportunity to introduce the Regional Parent Supporters – our team of volunteers who bring a friendly face and understanding closer to home.
We are very fortunate that two Trusts, The Pears Foundation and Foundation Scotland, have given us grant funding to provide every person with SMS on our UK membership list with a ‘picnic box’. Full of goodies, these boxes should help; and encourage members to join in activities and connect with other families. Amongst the picnic box items included will be a teddy bear, an enamel picnic mug, a sweet treat, an activity book, a cookie cutter, as-well-as awareness materials and support media for the activities. These will be sent out to our SMS community approximately 1-2 weeks ahead of the picnic.
We would really love an Easter card and picnic box to reach as many people with SMS as possible. Please can we ask that you spend a couple of minutes filling in a membership form (even if they have done so in the past) to ensure we have the correct contact details for you, and also for your SMS person.
