Giggles and Smiles Nannying

GSN presents Teddy Bear Picnic

We're fundraising for Bear Cottage!

In collaboration with community partners, Giggles and Smiles Nannying is hosting a Teddy Bear Picnic, Family Fun Day to raise awareness and money in fundraising for Superhero Week in support of Bear Cottage.

“Bear Cottage is the only children’s hospice in NSW - a very special place that’s dedicated to caring for children with life-limiting conditions. Bear Cottage is set up to provide excellence in paediatric palliative care 24 hours a day, and their affiliation to The Sydney Children's Hospitals Network means they have access to some of the best medical resources in the world. Providing respite and end-of-life care for children with terminal illnesses and their families in a medically supported ‘home away from home’. For children in their care there is no happy ending or miracle cure. Bear Cottage gives them as much love, care, laughter, fun, and support, as they need.”

The event will take place 10:00am – 3:00pm on Sunday 4th August 2019 at The Entertainment Grounds, Gosford NSW 2250.

Families and community members are invited to join in our Family Fun Day where they can bring their own picnic or enjoy our Sausage Sizzle and Food Vendors. We will go on a Bear Hunt searching for Super Bear who will be drawing our Super Raffle to close the event on the day. With so much fun to be had with Family Fun Games, Activity Stalls, a Jumping Castle and more!

Money raised through the event will go towards our fundraising goal and will help support the wonderful work that Bear Cottage does for children with life-limiting conditions.

Applications are now open for Stall Holders and Food Vendors.
