The Norfolk Hospice’s Bears Hugh and Harmony have been arrested and locked up in jail. They were caught in a local supermarket on Valentine’s Day stealing Gummy Bears from the Pick’n’Mix and were arrested and thrown into jail.

Now they need to raise £500 to be released from jail and the Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House is appealing to the public to raise this bail fund.

Jackie Cameron from the Norfolk Hospice said: “The bears don’t deserve to be locked up, they are not criminals. They simply cannot resist Gummy Bears. We have spoken to them and they are deeply sorry for stealing and have learnt their lesson. We need to free them so that they can carry on raising funds for our patients.”

To donate to the bail fund you can:

Phone 01485 542891 and donate with a credit or debit card.

Send a cheque payable to “The Norfolk Hospice” to The Norfolk Hospice, Common Road (West), Snettisham, King’s Lynn, PE31 7PF.

Donate online or text BAIL14 £10 to 70070 (JustTextGiving by Vodafone).

The bail needs to be raised Thursday March 6 when Hugh and Harmony will be officially charged with the offence at the annual Hospice Hold Up. Twenty fellow convicts are also facing arrest and charge at the event, which last year saw Stephen Bett, Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner arrested.
