Appeal launched to find owner of adorable bear left at Derbyshire hospital

An appeal has been launched by staff at Chesterfield Royal Hospital to try and find the owner of an adorable teddy bear, which was left on site earlier this week.

Staff came across the bear, who doesn’t yet have a name, on Wednesday, February 2.

The child’s cuddly toy is from the famous toy shop Hamleys with staff at the hospital desperate to reunite him with his rightful owner.

In a statement on its Facebook page, the hospital said: “Happy ending required…

“We have a small fluffy bear who was found on our grounds on Wednesday, 2 February.

“He’s being well looked after by his new friends in Patient Accounts – but is missing home and the little person who he was meant for.”




The abandoned bear isn’t causing any trouble though for the NHS workers who’re looking after him and has even been adopted as a mascot of the department, although his tea-making abilities leave a lot to be desired.

“He’s very well behaved and is helping our teams out by being their unofficial mascot and ‘fur’apy bear, but it’s nearly the weekend and he’d really like to go home. He’s too sweet for someone not to be missing him.” continued the post.

Anyone who thinks the bear either belongs to them or a little one they know can contact Chesterfield Royal Hospital’s Patient Accounts or pop into the hospital’s main entrance.
