For a day teds outnumber school pupils.

FOR every bear that ever there was will gather in Nuneaton for certain because today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

Well, that was the case at Glendale Infant School in Skye Close when the entire school held a teddy bears' picnic in aid of Action Research, whose mascot is Paddington Bear.

Each pupil paid 50p to bring in their favourite teddy for a picnic lunch in the school grounds to raise pounds 200 for the charity dedicated to preventing and treating disease and disability.

School secretary Carol Hoverd said: "It was a very nice day. We have 250 children here but many more bears, and one or two of the teachers brought in their favourite."
