We’re all going on a teddy bear hunt… and you’re invited!

Willen Hospice have launched a Teddy Bear Hunt for all of the family to enjoy. Get the kids out of the house over the Easter holiday in search for cuddly bears hiding around Willen Lake. How many will you find?

Willen Hospice needs to raise £4.7Million every year. COVID-19 has disrupted their fundraising activities and income they generate from their shops. By taking part in the Teddy Bear Hunt, you’ll be helping them to continue supporting patients during one of the most challenging times we have ever faced.


Full details of the Teddy Bear Hunt are below and it looks like great fun!

Click here for full details and to sign up.


Here’s how it works…

  • Between 29 March – 11 April, 20 teddy bears will be hidden around Willen Lake and nearby areas (within walking distance). You can play any day within those two weeks.

  • At the beginning of March, you’ll be emailed a Teddy Bear Hunt pack. This will include the Teddy Bear Hunt clues and answer sheet, a children’s sponsorship form, children’s colouring in sheet, and a recipe for teddy bear biscuits to keep you fuelled on the hunt. If you don’t have a printer at home, email events@willen-hospice.org.uk and they’ll get a pack to you.

  • On the day of the hunt, take our Clues and Answer sheet with you, and follow the first clue.

  • When you reach the first teddy bear, you will see a poster by it with it’s name on it, and the number of the next clue you need to read. Before you leave, write down the teddy bear’s name on the answer sheet, and have a go at the teddy bear trivia question – you don’t need to get this correct, it’s just for some extra fun!

  • Keep going until you reach teddy bear #20. Once you’ve found the last teddy bear, take a photo of it and email it along with your completed answer sheet – this can also be a photo – to events@willen-hospice.org.uk. You have until 18 April 2021 to do this. This will be your one free entry into the Prize Draw (below), which will be chosen at random.

So get ready to join the fun whilst supporting an amazing cause here in Milton Keynes.


When you sign up, you’ll get one free entry per family to our special teddy bear prize draw! There’s also an option to add additional entries for £1 when you register.


Up for grabs is a total of six great prize bundles, made up for four or five items. We have prizes across three age groups, (ages 0 – 3, ages 4 – 6, ages 7+), with both boys and girls categories.


Coronavirus regulations must be followed at all times. Please do not join up with other households and stay socially distanced from other families. If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, or have been told to self-isolate, it’s important you follow the Government’s advice and stay at home to save lives.
