Families from Norwich are being reminded that it is not too late to organise a teddy bears picnic in aid of a national children's charity this month.

People in the city can host a picnic anytime from July 7 until July 13 to raise money for bibic, a charity which helps children with conditions affecting their communication and learning abilities.

Simone Joyce, community and events fundraiser at bibic, said: 'We're asking teddy bear fans, young and old, to organise a picnic.

'We're hoping nurseries, mum and toddler groups, primary schools, families, individuals and even businesses will host an event. All we ask is people donate £1 each to bibic to take part and that the organisers send us the money collected as a cheque after the event.'

The teddy bears picnic is part of a week of furry-themed fundraisers the charity is organising.

Anyone interested in being involved can download a free fundraising pack full of the 'bear' essentials - including a template for creating teddy bear ears, pictures to colour in, posters and flyers to print off and ideas for games - at
