“Having a contact phone number is crucial for charities like Bear Necessities so as soon as we found out its phone was broken we decided to step in.

“Bear Necessities support families with baby and children essentials to ensure that no child goes without, from nappies and formula to stairgates and clothing and toys, for children aged 0-16 years.

“We were delighted to present the phone to Robyn Crainey of Bear Necessities and she expressed her gratitude.”
