Our bear-utiful Big Sleuth bears are going under the hammer and we need your help to raise much-needed funds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity!
Do you want to buy back one of the bear-illiant bears that have won the hearts and minds of Bear-mingham this summer? Each striking sculpture tells a different story, whether it is raising awareness of the children’s hospital, the plight of the sun bear, celebrating a community, the city’s industrial heritage or a famous film character or artist.
Creative designs using an array of colours, textures and ideas have come from celebrities and artists, including the very well respected artists Temper and Reuben Colley, pop-rock star Bradley Simpson from The Vamps, actor Adil Ray A.K.A Citizen Khan, Birmingham Bears and England cricketer Chris Woakes, adventurer Bear Grylls, and a special Peaky Blinders bear endorsed by the show’s writer Steven Knight.
The project’s predecessor The Big Hoot, raised over £500,000 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity in 2015 and The Big Sleuth is aiming to exceed this target. Bidding for each bear is expected to start in the region of £6,000, with favourites such as Intrepid Bear and Peaky Blinders Bear likely to raise considerably more.
If you would like to help raise the roof off last year’s total and take home a bear of your very own, please see below how you can be involved.
