THE BRUN BEAR FOUNDATION
The Registered Charity organising BAME Birthing With Colour
In partnering with the Advisory Board The Brun Bear Foundation will deliver a highly relevant programme with maximum benefit for the medical profession, wider society and animal welfare too. Here's our story...
... It all began with two bears
The Brun Bear Foundation was established in 2015 by Edwin Lampert in memory of his father.
Sadly, Edwin's Dad had Brain Cancer. The radiotherapy his father went through resulted in his father believing that the family lived with two kindly bears called Brunhilfer and Brunfin.
Edwin's Dad - who has good insight into his condition - asked his son to look after his bears for him "when the time came."
Our charitable commitment...
When his Dad died in 2014 Edwin set about creating a charitable foundation as way of honouring his father's memory and values as well as supporting causes he had held dear: medical research, community projects in the London Boroughs of Bromley and Lewisham, and animal welfare - with special emphasis on bears...
Of books, events, challenges and scholarships!
Edwin's first act was to write a children's book about two kindly bears who lived with a kindly man and his wife. All proceeds from book sales go to The Foundation. A second book is ready and both will be available in different languages. Edwin subsequently added community events, supper clubs, an annual epic charity challenge and scholarship programme to The Brun Bear Foundation's activities.
The Brun Bear Foundation is staffed by volunteers who work hard to support the charity's chosen causes, uphold its inclusive ethos and maybe, in some small way, help Edwin look after his father's bears.
