“Teddy” is found in Kilkenny after bear hunt

Update 12.30pm: Teddy has been found! After a mammoth search, little Lara will be reunited with her Teddy this afternoon with the bear making its way back to the St. Vincent de Paul shop in Kilkenny.


A little local girl needs your help to be reunited with a teddy bear she accidentally donated to charity.

The bear was among three bags of items that were kindly donated to the St Vincent de Paul shop near St Canice’s Church in Kilkenny last Friday.

It has since been sold but Saint Vincent De Paul are now appealing to whoever bought it to please return the bear to them and they will be fully reimbursed.

The little girl left without, identified as Lara on KCLR Live earlier this morning, four years old and has had it since she was born. It is of significant sentimental value to the family.

It’s a brown teddy with a little yellow tag or label on its ear.
