Gifting Bear Donation for Children’s Grief Centre

Brown Thomas’ chosen charity this year was the Children's Grief Centre. The store in Limerick is devoting one of its famous windows to supporting the Children’s Grief Centre. The charity committee has come up with an idea called the gifting bear. Over the weekend of Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15 where the children of the Brown Thomas Limerick team were asked to donate a teddy. The teddies were placed in the window and there was a bucket collection for members of the public to donate if they wished. After the weekend teddy bears will then be handed over to the Children's Grief Centre and given to boys and girls who may need a hug. Brown Thomas’ donation of teddy bears and bucket collection is timed well, as also on that day, Friday, June 14, the Children’s Grief Centre celebrated its tenth anniversary with their ‘Children and Loss Conference 2019’ at the Millennium Theatre at the Limerick Institute of Technology.
