At the close of the month long auction for China Bear Rescue charity , which was held by Abracadabra Teddies shop in Saffron Walden UK , I was delighted to hear that "Coral" ( 3" bear above) had raised the magnificent sum of £300 - all of which will benefit the beautiful Moon bears in Asia . Thank you to all the bidders for their huge generosity !
