"Hi, I'm Basil Bear. I'm St Basils fundraising mascot and I just wanted to say hello!
Some St Basils supporters are taking me on exciting journeys and I'm going to be
hanging around all St Basils fundraising events from now on. You might see me
sleeping out at one of the sleepouts, taking part in a bike ride or
making some tomato and St Basils soup. In fact, I'm going to be taking part
in the St Basils Walk on Saturday 23rd June 2018. Maybe you could keep
If you want to take part in the walk just go to www.stbasils.org.uk/walk.
I would love it if you could take pictures of me and put them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. (Remember to tag St Basils in. Just search St Basils Charity and you will find them) ".
Lots of love.
