A “beary” special fundraiser: 2021 Benevolent Bears

Lorraine of Fig Tree Hollow started making bears under the guidance of world recognised Teddy Bear Designer – Patti, of Kympatti Bears. Lorraine’s early career as a tailoress put her in very good stead to learning the art of bear making. With her artistic flair and attention to detail, Lorraine has been recognised by her peers as a talented bespoke bear maker.

Lorraine was delighted to put her talents to a good cause and kindly offered to create another Restoring Hope Parkinson’s Therapy Limited Collection of five different handcrafted bears, following the resounding success of the 2020 auction.

The five bears will be auctioned over five weeks:

  • Rumpole – 21 April – 28 April
  • Taytee – 28 April – 5 May
  • Bethany – 5 May – 12 May
  • Myra – 12 May – 19 May
  • Lottie – 19 May – 26 May
