As a part of SI Bristol’s Friendship Weekend Centenary Celebrations, the Club is aiming to collect 100 knitted bears by May 2020. The bears will be at the celebration Tea at the Marriott Hotel on 10th May 2020, after which they will be given to the Motorway Police who will give one as a comfort to any child involved in a road accident. Together with the bears already knitted by SI Bristol members, 34 were handed over by Club members at the South West & Channel Islands Regional meeting in March 2019.
At present SI Bristol is well on their way to reaching their target of 100 Bears by May 2020. Thank you all so much, keep knitting!”
