Meet Bevan: our special bear, created with one of the biggest names in traditional teddy bear manufacturing.

Bevan the Bear was created to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS. He is named after Aneurin Bevan, the founder of the NHS and is available in a limited run of 1,948 bears to reflect the year the NHS was formed.

A percentage of all sales of Bevan are donated to the SaTH Charity to fund equipment and provisions that will benefit patients across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales.

Bevan has been created by Merrythought, which has handmade traditional teddy bears in the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge since 1930. Merrythought is a family business famous for crafting the finest, jointed, mohair teddy bears adored by children and adults across the world. Every one of their bears is lovingly made by hand in their Ironbridge factory, giving them a unique character and superior quality that can last a lifetime.

Bevan is now available from the Merrythought website.
