What is the Boldmere Bear Legacy Fund?

We're raising money for the Boldmere Bear Legacy Fund.

The Legacy Fund will help secure the Boldmere Bear’s future on our high street for years to come, as well as ensuring it remains at the heart of the community.

Alongside the maintenance costs, Boldmere Futures Partnership is looking to create an educational legacy that will inspire the local community to engage in arts and education projects. We will work in partnership with our local artist to deliver these educational sessions in local schools and to the community as a whole. These would be delivered through art, dance, music and history workshops. We would also like to produce a Boldmere history trail, signage and a teacher’s support pack. 

As we are located by Europe’s largest natural parkland, we are also looking to link into projects and activities that promote health and wellbeing. We have total support from The Boldmere Bullets (our local cycle and running group) as well as other local sports and health groups. 


Boldmere Bear Legacy Crowdfunder

Boldmere Futures Partnership is running a Crowdfunder until mid-November to help secure the long term legacy of Boldmere Bear and ensuring it remains at the heart of our community as a beacon of community spirit.
