Teddy Bear Drive - Naturally Gold Coast Festival
On 24November the City of Gold Coast, together with Councillor Hermann Vorster, are hosting the family-friendly Naturally Gold Coast Festival in the Robina auditorium.
You can learn all about our local native flora, buy native plants for your garden or speak to a native garden expert for tips. Get up close with our native animals including a range of Australian wildlife such as snakes, lizards, birds and native bees.
On the day we will be hosting a ‘Teddy Bear’ drive and collecting gold coin donations to raise money for Wildcare Australia who rescue and care for sick, injured, orphaned and displaced native wildlife with the intention of returning them to the wild. If you have an old teddy bear that you no longer require, bring it with you on the day and we will pass it on to Wildcare. These teddies will be cuddled by orphaned and sick joeys to help make them feel safe and keep them warm while they are recovering.
Requirements for teddies:
Size range from 10cm to 70cm tall
In good, clean, unused condition with no holes, rips or tears
Standard polyester filing to enable them to be washed and dried regularly
No internal plastic pellets, wheat, batteries etc.
Teddies with short fur are preferred
No teddies that have been used as dog toys please
