Bear Diaries

‘Get teddy’ for a new and unique fundraising event, in association with Build-a-Bear, with all proceeds donated to The Colchester NSPCC Business Group.

100 lucky businesses have the chance to take part in our event. For just £25 you will receive a fluffy ‘intern’ to join you for 2 weeks of ‘work experience’ this October.

Engage your team with one of these sought-after helpers to make work-life more bear-able! Jump on social media to document what they get up to, whether they’re helping to bear the burden of the admin or paws-ing for a chat by the coffee machine!  

All businesses involved will be tagged and promoted on our social media platforms – and the cub that has the most interesting fortnight will win £250-worth of vouchers for their company!

If you’re interested in recruiting a member of our stuffed staff and supporting this amazing cause, simply click the Purchase link below (60p payment processing fee applies).

Otherwise please feel free to email any questions to

We can’t wait to see what the cubs get up to!

* A 60p payment processing fee is charged for online payments.
