Life size bear with black jacket and birthday cakes and cards

Arthur Bear woke up a very excited Bear today (21 June 2022) knowing it was his 7th birthday.

He spent the morning in the Bistro with his friends reading through the 100s of birthday card he was lucky enough to receive from some of our young supporters; staff at the Hospice sang and enjoyed his birthday cake together.

Arthur spends his days helping the team at the Hospice and enjoying being out in the community.

He enjoys meeting members of the public whilst raising the profile of Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and bringing a smile to everyone he meets.
