We were approaching our 25th Paddington Bear – hooray! We were about to make the 50% mark – but alas! There was no bear to be found at Berkeley Square.
Baffled, we thought we better ask Rolls Royce since it was their bear that was missing on the not-so-large square. We couldn’t have missed it!
When we spoke to their customer service desk, they told us that someone had stolen the Rolls Royce Paddington Bear‘s goggles! It was taken away yesterday morning to be repaired before the auction on Wednesday evening. What a bummer!
May’s comment: Missed it by a day. Not sure if there are any more Paddingtons to be found as they are supposedly being auctioned off on Wednesday evening.
“The lead charity partner of The Paddington Trail is the NSPCC who will be auctioning off the bears with Christie’s, both online and in a live auction in December, with all the proceeds going to the charity. It is hoped that The Paddington Trail and associated activities will raise more than £500,000 for the NSPCC and its ChildLine service.”
