Firm to the rescue after charity had fundraising mascot stolen.

IT'S triple joy for a local charity rocked by the theft of its fundraising mascot.

An accountancy firm has donated three giant teddies to replace the UHCW Charity bear which was stolen last week from the entrance to University Hospital in Walsgrave.

Sidney was being used to promote this year's Christmas raffle to raise funds for the Coventry and Warwick Breast Cancer Unit Appeal.

Adela Appleby, head of UHCW Charity, said: "The support of the local community since Sidney went missing has been amazing, and we are overwhelmed by this wonderful trio of teddies and very grateful to Harrison, Beale & Owen for donating them." Phil Ewing, director at Harrison, Beale & Owen, said: "We hope the trio can help Adela and the team to sell as many tickets for the prize draw as possible."
