Build-A-Bear Workshops

CHF is delighted that its partnership with Build-A-Bear Workshop to help raise money for children with heart problems is running again this year. Build-A-Bear have been partnered with CHF since 2010 and we’re utterly delighted that this partnership continues.

Customers can support children with a heart condition by buying a purple heart (below) for £1.00 in any of the UK Build-A-Bear Workshops. A percentage of the purchase price from each purple heart comes to CHF to deliver our services to children with congenital and acquired heart disease and their families.

Cyber-Savvy bear fans are also able to help, with any purchase of a Bearville Outfitter gift card online (which provides credit for virtual items on offering the option to donate 5% of the sale price of the card to CHF.
