The Little Miracles Bears

Welcome to the home of the Little Miracles Bears at Cambridge, Ely and Newmarket.

Our bears are here thanks to some fantastic support from the Build-a-Bear Cambridge store team as well as the Build-a-Bear Foundation in the USA, to whom we are extremely grateful. This allows the children that we support to take the bears home for a week, write about them, photograph what they get up to and bring all their stories back to this page.

 Thomas, Hilton and Lottie were all named after three organisations that provided us with an amazing level of support during our move to our new premises at the Ely Community Centre and are wonderful people that we just can’t thank enough. Those organisations are the Thomas Cook Children’s Charity, Hilton in the Community Foundation (now DM Thomas Foundation) and the National Lottery “Awards for All”.

Thomas is the leader of the team, he keeps an eye on our offices and centre, making sure everything is in order as well as joining us on trips to pass on his knowledge. Alongside Thomas we have his best friends Hilton and Lottie. Hilton has a great sense of adventure and is always looking to bring a smile while Lottie is our little princess who loves a chat.

Our little friends like to go on their travels and see a bit of the world as well as being on hand to provide cuddles to our members whenever they are needed. Take a look below at some of the adventures they have had so far and what they have been getting up to!
