How 3 became 4. An update on Jess’s Gang -Titan Challenge.

Last month we brought a news article about 3 Muskebears, 22 Brave Volunteers, raising funds for 3 Charities! Now we bring you news of how 3 became 4, together with information on how you can support Jess’s Gang-The Titan Challenge.

Those of you who know our Secretary, Ann Shaw, will know she has made it her mission to ‘rescue’ teddy bears.  She scours charity shops searching out the unloved bears who have been given away and offers them a new home in the ‘Bear Pit’.

The story began with Murphy, who was sitting on her chest when she woke up from an operation in 2012.  He is named after the surgeon who did the operation.  Happily, Murphy acquired a brother in March this year.  Alf is the spitting image of his brother.

Murphy and Alf have a very good friend who lives in Bromsgrove.  He is Cuddles, Jess Hiles’ constant companion.

All three are very excited to be involved in the Titan Zip Wire Challenge on 6th October. 

On a recent visit to the Barnardo’s Charity Shop in Market Drayton, Ann came across a very sad looking bear, calling out to be rescued.  When she brought Maude home, Alf and Murphy persuaded her to join their adventure in North Wales.

So, the Three Muskebears are now the Four Muskebears.  Cuddles will be in purple for MacIntyre, Alf will wear blue for Guide Dogs and Murphy will be in cerise for SDN. Maude will be wearing orange for Safe Places Shropshire.

The charities who will benefit are:

  • MacIntyre – a national charity that has been providing support to people with learning disabilities for 50 years
  • Guide Dogs – a national charity that supports blind and partially sighted people to enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else
  • Shropshire Disability Network (SDN) – We thank Jess, for choosing us.

  • Sponsorship. If you would like a sponsorship form to get, please contact [email protected] or call/text 07780 852229

  • Promoting: Share this news item with friends and families and tell people about it.
  • Support on the day: We would like many people to come along on Saturday 6th October to cheer those taking part.

Event description: This is our last fundraiser & awareness day for 2018.
Sainsbury’s Telford have offered us a bag pack/collection at their store & we are very grateful that we have this opportunity.

Why raise money? A lot of our work takes place behind the scenes so it is not always obvious to see why a small local charity like SDN needs money to operate. To maintain this website, it costs money! We have to have insurance cover for all our events including our quarterly meetings. We pay for meeting room hire for our quarterly meetings including refreshments etc & there are invites to go to those who cannot access details on this site.

Our running costs include financing  our newsletter, providing information ie leaflets, cost of equipment (SDN laptops, projector, sound system, banners etc) We pay for postage, stationery, toner for our laser printer, paper costs all mount up. We need  publicity material so the shopping list grows.

We hope you will support us if you are shopping in Sainsbury’ s Telford today.
If you would like to help us for an hour or so between 9 am & 7 pm please call 07398 350255 (SDN Secretary Mobile Number) or email Ann our [email protected]

We are so grateful to the Community Champion and all at Morrisons Wellington for allowing us to raise funds at their store by holding this collection.

If you can spare, one hour of your time, it would help us raise much needed funds and awareness of our charity. If you can spare an hour or two to collect, please call or text 07780 852 229 or email [email protected]
