Teddy bear auction for a great cause

Schools and educational institutes are the cornerstone of any great society, and there are many across the country who are doing remarkable things in many ways – be it through education or driving charity initiatives.

One such school is St Stithians Girls’ Prep. They’re raising funds via a Teddy Bear Auction. The school got a bunch of beautiful collectible teddy bears donated for the fundraiser, and are currently running a really cool auction from their Facebook page. Our chief señor, Carel Nolte, donated some of his late mum’s teddy bears to this wonderful initiative.

If you’d like to get your hands on one of these teddies simply head to the St Stithians Girls’ Prep Teddy Bear Auction Facebook page, scroll through the teddy bear pics on the page, and place your bid in the comments section of the teddy you want. You can also bid anonymously by emailing teddybearauction@gmail.com.

The auction ends on Friday 6 November, so be sure to get bidding SOON to support this awesome initiative!Teddy 1
