On Saturday 1st August 2020, Believe hosted a Bear Hunt around the stunning Llangorse Lake in the Brecon Beacons, to raise money for organ donation in Wales, and provide support to those affected by it.
Last year we were sponsors of the Transplant Games in Newport along with a few other charities, but sadly this year this event has been cancelled due to Coronavirus. On 1st August, Believe and other charities across the UK organised their own events, which raised awareness about organ donation. The fundraising event kicked off at 12pm and saw a fantastic number of supporters walk the 6k and find teddy bears along the route. At 3pm Anna-Louise and Elizabeth linked-up with the Donor Family Network and the other charity partners taking part. To top the day off, there was a raffle in the clubhouse where they were joined by Believe’s very own Mascot ‘Fraser Bear’. The day was a huge success and we raised over £1000, which will go such a long way towards helping those families in Wales who have been affected by organ donation.

Believe and all the Trustees would like to thank everybody who donated and came along and supported this fabulous event!
