Get involved with the Barney Bear Colouring Competition with Dunelm Mill this Easter

Colouring Competition 2

Our adorable mascot Barney Bear is the star of an exciting colouring competition to raise money for Barnardo’s.

Home furnishings retailer Dunelm will launch the competition just in time for the Easter holidays. Dunelm has been a partner of Barnardo’s since October, and staff have already raised £38,000 through a previous nationwide in-store fundraising event, which was kindly match-funded by the organisation.

Anyone wanting to take part in the Barney Bear Colouring Competition can pop into their local branch of Dunelm and pick up a Barney Bear colouring-in sheet, which costs just £1. Finished mini-masterpieces can be handed back in-store before the competition closes. Children will then be in with the chance of winning their very own Barney Bear! 100% of the money raised will go straight towards our vital work transforming the lives of vulnerable children in the UK.

Dunelm PR Manager, Rachael Miller, said: “With the Easter holidays around the corner, the Barney Bear colouring competition seemed like the perfect idea

Not only does the competition keep the little ones busy over the Easter period but it also contributes to a fantastic cause”.

The competition is perfect for Dunelm and Barnardo’s, because of our shared family values.

The competition runs from April 14 to April 28 and is open to children under the age of 12, for full terms and conditions click here.
