Please note: this bear is not available for immediate delivery.
Orders will be despatched when the Merrythought factory re-opens in the coming weeks.
This adorable golden-blonde mohair teddy bear was specially created to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the National Health Service, and is now raising funds for the NHS Charities Covid-19 Appeal and Merrythought’s local hospitals (Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust).
Endearingly named after the organisation's founder Aneurin Bevan, he is a limited edition of 1948pcs, marking the year this much-loved organisation began.
Bevan is a particularly characterful bear, made from tousled blonde mohair with a gold base that marries up beautifully with his sandy-gold cotton velvet paws. Designed with all the family in mind, he subtly features the coloured outlines of a grandparent, parent and child embroidered onto his left paw, and is neatly finished with a high-quality blue satin bow.

Bevan, a truly beautiful bear!
Bevan was created to celebrate 70 years of the NHS on 5th July 2018. He is an irresistible present and has been bought for a baby born that same day! The outstanding quality of workmanship and materials together with knowing that two hospitals benefit from this sale, makes this purchase a very satisfying experience.
A Magnificent Bear
Bevan is a very handsome bear who is beautiifully made. He represents a fine tribute to the wonderful work done by our NHS. A fine example of a British Bear!
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.
