The Brun Bear Foundation presented a £250 cheque to The Big Hearts Foundation a charity that saves and rehabilitates bears in Russia's Far East.
The £250 came from books sales of his children's book The Adventures of Brunhilfer and Brunfin: The Flood!
When presenting the cheque The Brun Bear Foundation honoured a promise to 10 year old Sofiya Yates Rahman of Lewisham. Sofia drew a beautiful picture of a bear and asked Edwin to take it to the presentation. The picture is being held by Lauren Haigh who works for Elbi an online app that has supported The Brun Bear Foundation in its fundraising efforts. Also featured are Anna Kogan Nasser and Nelly Mihill of Big Hearts Foundation.
