Asda set to host Teddy Bear’s Picnics for BBC Children in Need!

Asda’s Community Champions from across Northern Ireland launching the retailer’s fundraising campaign for BBC Children in Need

If you go down to Asda today you’re sure of a big surprise!

Asda’s 16-strong band of Community Champions are set to host Teddy Bear’s Picnics across Northern Ireland this July to kick-start the retailer’s 2017 fundraising campaign for BBC Children in Need.  Each picnic will have traditional treats and fun and games including a tombola, spin and win wheel, colouring in and Pudsey-themed crafts.

George Rankin, Senior Director for Asda Northern Ireland explains:

“This is Asda’s 17th year as proud supporters of BBC Children in Need – it is such a worthy cause that makes a real difference to disadvantaged children within the local community here in Northern Ireland and across the UK.  We’re inviting everyone to pop down with their favourite bear –  and don’t worry if your ted is looking a little scruffy – we have special ‘Repair a Bear’ stations in store where you can bring your bear to get spruced up ahead of the picnic. With National Teddy Bear’s Picnic Day in July – there couldn’t be a better time to bring out your bears and join in the fun!”

Asda Portadown is the first store to host a picnic, and will take place in-store on Friday 15th July
