The Bears of Sheffield have arrived!
Artists of all ages, professional and amateur, have brought the creatures to life for the new public arts trail for summer 2021, coordinated by the Children's Hospital Charity.
There are 100 little bears and 60 big bears to find. The big bears are designed by professional artists from far and wide, while the little bears are designed, painted and fundraised for by children and young people in local schools.
At the end of the summer each of the big bears will be auctioned off, raising much needed funds for the new Cancer and Leukaemia Ward at Sheffield Children’s.
You too can help raise money during the Bears of Sheffield by donating, taking part in an event or registering for a fundraising pack.
The inspirations for the trail's theme are the much-loved bear in Sheffield Botanical Gardens and the Children's Hospital Charity mascot Theo. The design even comes from the same designer as the original Botanical Gardens bear, David Mayne.
Have a beary fun time out there!
