New Recruit for Guy's Gift

Meet Leamington Bear... he'll be joining the Guy's Gift team very soon as our official 'Buddy Bear'. Here he is with his good friend Diana (who, along with her family, is kindly donating him to Guy's Gift).

So, how did Leamington Bear come to be joining our team? When his current owner decided to set off on a gap year, meetings were held to decide Leamington Bear's future. He needed a new professional challenge and what better way to use his special talents than to help children who are going through a difficult time. Leamington is thrilled to be joining the Guy's Gift team and can bear-ly wait to start his new job!

Diana and the team at White Stuff's Leamington Spa store are holding a bit of a do to celebrate Leamington's new role and we'd love you to join us.

When: Tuesday, 28th August 2014, 11am-4pm

Where: White Stuff, 66 The Parade, Leamington Spa

What: Leamington Bear will be on hand to meet new friends and start his new job with Guy’s Gift. And because music can make a good party better, Leamington Bear has asked his friend Diana (who just happens to be a member of the Spa Strummers Ukulele Band) to serenade him on the day with lots of great songs. There’s even one about a bear, of course.

So, come along to White Stuff, meet Leamington Bear and join the party!

Top of the Pots in Leamington Spa


We were thrilled to take a trip to Leamington Spa last Thursday to support White Stuff's 'Top of the Pots' competition and sale of yummy jams and chutney.


There were jam, scones, tea and coffee in the morning and at lunchtime, cheese, crackers, chutney and wine made an appearance. It was all for a good cause - every pot of jam and chutney sold was raising money for Guy's Gift.

 The Strawberry Jame with Marc de Champagne was particularly yummy!

White Stuff asked its customers to submit jam and chutney recipes and all the winning ones from people all over the country are being made into a book. It'll be out in time for Christmas and will be sold in aid of all the charities that White Stuff supports.

Meeting and greeting and all in a good cause!

White Stuff is always fundraising on our behalf...next time you're in Leamington Spa, pop into the store for a mooch and buy some sweets from behind the counter (the proceeds of which all go to Guy's Gift).

Here are just two of the White Stuff team who helped make the event a great success - Monique (the store's Manager) and Diana (who has come up with another exciting fundraising idea for us...watch this space).

Thank you to everyone at White Stuff - the team, everyone who entered the competition and to all those who bought jam and chutney. It was definitely a top day!
