New hospice mascot to be launched at Christmas Fair thanks to charity
A North Lincolnshire hospice is set to reveal its brand new mascot at its Christmas Fair, thanks to a generous donation from a retail distribution giant’s charitable organisation.
A brand new updated version of Lindsey Bear will make an appearance at Lindsey Lodge Hospice’s Christmas Craft Fair, after Making a Difference Locally (MADL), Nisa Retail’s corporate foundation donated the £1,500 needed to replace him.
Lindsey Lodge Hospice Fundraiser Samantha Wood said: “Our Lindsey Bear mascot has been representing the Hospice for a number of years now and he was looking very worn out, so we were delighted when MADL contacted us with their generous offer!
“We’d like to say a massive thank you to them for their amazing support.”
MADL Head of Charity Kate Carroll said: “Lindsey Lodge Hospice means so much to everybody at Nisa Retail. Lindsey Bear is a vital part of the Hospice team and he was feeling a bit tired, so we thought it would be a nice to spruce him up a bit in time for the Christmas celebrations. We can’t wait to meet him!”
