About

We are delighted to be back again with an even bigger and better Teddy Bear Hospital, on Saturday April 6th, 2024, in the Sports Centre, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin 2. Teddy Bear Hospital is an interactive and educational event to raise money for Bumbleance while making hospital more BEAR-able for kids and teddies alike. We aim to promote the foundations of a healthy lifestyle by removing the fear around going to the doctor or dentist, by performing a checkup on Teddy, allowing children to become comfortable with the different sights, sounds and equipment used in hospital and medical settings. Teddy Bear Hospital is run by medical students from Trinity College Dublin, and is generously supported by our lead sponsors, Medisec and MPS. Donations for Bumbleance will be gratefully received on the day, alternatively, you can donate by purchasing a "Donation" for a value of your choosing. This year there is a fee of €2 per ticket, to help cover the cost of running this event, so that all funds raised can go directly to Bumbleance. We'll have practical stations, where we'll learn how to X-Ray Teddy and look at their bones, and maybe even fix them up if they've gotten hurt. Our young trainees will learn how to listen to Teddy's hearts and lungs, and will leave as a fully qualified Teddy Doctor! We'll also have arts and crafts, music, dancing and sports stations, so there really is something for everyone. A Special Sensory Session will start the day off at 9.30am, for children who prefer a quieter environment with less stimulation. We are always keen to learn and improve our Teddy Bear Hospital. If there is anything specific we can do to help make the day more appropriate and enjoyable for your child, please get in touch with us beforehand and we will do our best to help. We ask that parents stay with their children at all times.
