CLIC Sargent has raised in the region of £3,800 for children and young people with cancer and their families, thanks to its recent ‘Care with a Bear’ eBay campaign.
Each bear auctioned was given a celebrity voice box, which played a special message for its lucky owner when they cuddled it and squeezed its tummy.
Veteran pop queen Kylie Minogue lent her support to the online auction and raised the most money, with her talkative teddy being sold for £1,850. Other enthusiastic fans bid £450 to get their paws on Ed Sheeran’s bear, and the cuddly Sir Cliff Richard collectible went for £315.
Other celebrities to take part included Steven Gerrard, Ricky Gervais, Graham Norton, Dermot O’Leary, Cilla Black and JLS.
