Bevan - A Special Bear
With the 5th of July marking the seventieth anniversary of the founding of the NHS what a sheer pleasure it was to find Bevan, the Merrythought teddy, for sale. Though he is already a limited edition teddy, and one given life through being hand made, he is particularly special not only to the homes of his new owners, whatever their age, but for the fact that his creation sees donations being made to the The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust. There is the expression that the child does not pick the teddy bear, rather the teddy bear picks the child - and, with a little help from my new friend Bevan, some of the magic of my childhood will continue to abide, perhaps even for another 70 years.
Bevan is striking bear with an adorable face. He is made of soft mohair and the embroidered paw is a lovely addition. A wonderful Merrythought creation, superb that the Hospitals are going to benefit.
