Teddy bear lovers from Norwich are being invited to help with an attempt to have the most teddies picnicking on the same day nationwide.

The potential world record event will take place on Wednesday, July 9, and has been organised by national charity bibic.

Geoff Cummins, chief executive, said: 'The picnic can take place on the day and 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.'

Bibic offers practical help to families caring for children with conditions like autism, cerebral palsy, brain injury, and specific learning difficulties.
