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.
Metro Bank's Holboln Branch hosted a special reception attended by The Brun Bear Foundation's Edwin Lampert, representatives from The Big Hearts Foundation, The Brun Bear Foundation's charity partner Elbi and Metro Bank (Holboln) assistant manager Mark O'Neill, pictured above with the cheque.
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 beautiful pictures of bears and asked Edwin to take them to the presentation.
The pictures are being held by Lauren Haigh (above) who works for Elbi an online app that has supported The Brun Bear Foundation in its fundraising efforts.
