My Story

Hi everyone, my name is Ledger.

I'm off on a UK wide adventure too raise vital funds for Cash for Kids so we can continue to support children throughout the Borders.

Thank you for visiting my page!
I'll be travelling all over the UK visiting different businesses and keeping a journal with different postcards from the places I visit.
When I come back to the Borders, I'll be visiting local schools and businesses before finding a new home to retire to.

I'd like to thank each and every one of you for visiting, donating and supporting my journey and helping to raise money for children who need it right here in the Borders - you're all champions!!

Keep an eye out below for updates on my journey - starting soon!

Lots of love,

Ledger! :D

After some photo's with the bears Amelia and Ledger headed in to M&Ds Scotlands Theme Park for some fun before heading home .

On Sunday 22nd September Ledger was invited along to support Team Borders in Wishaw for the final event of the 2019 Taekwondo champions league. The team took home a massive 31 medal haul between them including 9 gold and managed to secure a spot on the top ten leader board in the country for this year. The team have now set their sights on a top three spot for 2020. If you would like to be part of this winning team check out Mr Reillys UKTC Taekwondo & Little Tiger Cubs School for a free taster lesson. Amazing atmosphere and team spirit Ledger was proud to be an honorary member for the day!

Ledger has been quiet for a little while as he has been away on his summer holidays, even a bear needs a little time away. Ledger went to Portsmouth and whilst there he managed to fit in a visit to Woodcot Community Preschool. Ledger had some relaxing days but enjoyed being out on the water Kayaking with his new found friends. Ledger is now back and ready to go back on his mission to raise funds for Cash For Kids so get in touch if you would like to spend some time with Ledger.

Happy Friday all!

I've had a super busy week with the DataDear team, they had me manning their stand and speaking to finance professionals from all over at Accountex, what's worse, in the evenings they were telling me how beautiful work and life is back in Malta. Paw me!

Don't worry, I think I'm heading to the med next year and seeing the sights for all the help I've been. What is a pinky promise?

Can't wait for my next adventure, check in soon!

Hi Everyone,

I'm just back from a trip to see my friends at Iwoca in London.

I've been learning how the guys Iwoca are trying to help small businesses by working with accountants and bookkeepers around the country, and seeing what different staff get up to on a daily basis.

I also had a trip out to Oxford Street and The British Museum to see some other London Bears and find out more about British History. It was lots of fun.

I even made a new friend called Sol and I got to bring him home with me - I like have a companion to travel with.

Huge thanks to the guys at Iwoca for having me.

I've heard that I'm off to a big event called Accountex with Joanne and Kim next - I'm so looking forward to seeing what we get up to!

I'll update you all again soon.

Lots of Love,

Ledger xxx

Hi Everyone!! :)

I thought I'd pop on and update you all on what I've been up to...

I spent a lovely couple of days with a lovely lady called Marie who took me all the way up to Stirling for the Caledonian National Conference.

It was an early start to beat all the traffic but well worth it.

I met lots of people from all across Scotland who work hard to promote children’s rights and support children who have experienced adverse childhood experiences.
They were interested to hear about my mission and all the hard work I've been undertaking so far.

At the conference, I attended a talk on β€˜Children’s Rights’ and β€˜Supporting Children who have experienced Trauma’. I learned so much and had lots of fun doing it.

I even got to go on the stage and explain my fundraising mission to everyone and have a yummy 3 course lunch.

I'm off on another adventure down to London now, I do like London! I'll post another update soon.

I'd like to take a second to thank everyone who has taken part so far and to everyone who has donated....you're all helping to make children's lives better and you're awesome!

Lots of Love

Hi Everyone!

I've been a busy teddy bear lately but I'm really enjoying all my adventures so far!

I travelled down to Bruntingthorpe on Saturday 30th of March with Chris Turner who is Joanne's (Director of NS24 Ltd) husband and on the Sunday I took part in a Guinness World Record attempt! I was really looking forward to this!
We stayed at the Hilton Hotel in Leicester where I was made to feel very welcome and was so comfortable.

The event was organised by Volvotuning.net who were trying to break the record for the largest number of Volvo cars in a parade over 1 mile and was organised in memory of one of the founding members of Volvotuning.net who sadly passed away last year - Jon "Nosh" Ronie and I think he would have been very proud of everyone who took part. It was also an opportunity for the guys to raise money for Breast Cancer Care and the last I heard they've managed to raise Β£15,150 so far!! Amazing!


At the event on the Sunday, I attracted quite a bit of attention - I was even carried around for a while by a guy in a kilt! I felt right at home, being from Scotland.
We arrived at Bruntingthorpe Air Field around 12:30pm, it took some time to get in because there were so many cars! Once we got in and got our spot, I sat on Chris's car for a while and enjoyed watching people pass by. The people I met were very nice and even some of the children there stopped to say hello.

Around 3:15 in the afternoon, it was time to set off and do the 1 mile lap to set the record - the atmosphere was very exciting. With so many cars there, it took about an hour to get round the 1 mile lap but we did it and had lots of fun!

The previous record for this was 570 cars and, although it hasn't been made official yet by Guinness World Records, the number of Volvo's that were at the event this time was 1,574!! It was very exciting to see and be a part of.

Although this particular adventure of mine may not contribute to the Cash for Kids Charity, I was still happy to be part of the event and make people aware of what we're trying to do. Lot's of people took information cards about me and my mission and so I hope they'll get in touch and offer me more fun adventures to help raise money for this amazing charity. And of course, it was a great opportunity to take lots of photos!

I think I'm off to London next week - but I haven't been told yet so we'll soon see.

I'd like to thank Chris and David for taking me on my latest adventure and for everyone who has taken part so far.

I'll update you again soon,

Lots of Love

Ledger :D

Hi Everyone!

I was in Bristol last week with the guys at Unleashed Software, learning all about inventory management and how they started out in New Zealand.

I was speaking to lots of customers and enjoying life in the office. They guys even gave me my very own Unleashed hat! I love it!

I then went back to the see the guys at NS24 for the weekend, as I understand it, I've got a busy week ahead so I needed a weekend to rest up. Lorna took me home with her on Friday and I had a nice relaxing couple of days.

Now I'm refreshed and ready to go! I can't wait to see what happens this week.

Thank you to everyone who has taken part so far and to all who have donated - I can't tell you how super grateful we are!

I'll write again soon with another update about my adventures.

Lots of Love,

Ledger

Hi Everyone,

I met my new friends from the RAF Rescue Unit on Friday night and I was so excited for my big day at the Borders Counties Rally on Saturday, so I thought an early night was needed.

I woke up on the Saturday morning to find it had been snowing - so we had breakfast and off we went up the hills in the snow! It was going to be a busy day.

When we arrived, we found we were at Stage Start of SS.3 - exciting! I was provided with a uniform and shown what's what inside the medical unit and then we were ready for action!

It was lots of fun watching the cars zoom off from the start line - it was very slippy so I had to be careful where I was walking. After a while, we started getting reports in of cars going off track - my time to be a hero had arrived!

The first car had slipped off the road and couldn't get back on the track.
So I checked the car. It had a poorly front wheel. The roof of which seemed strangely familiar to him......
The Driver & Co-Driver were fine so I sat in the car, waiting for Piper 1 to take them off the stage.
Back into the ambulance of Raf Rescue for a warm.
Then off to the next one.

Whoa!!! This was a big one.
The car left the track and felled an eighteen inch thick Christmas tree and ended up on its roof, pirouetted and "sunroof surfed" until it came to a halt 200 feet from the tree.
I jump out gets out and saw the "OK" board was showing. The Driver & Co-Driver only had their pride hurt!
I helped direct operations...

So, after a very long day..
We went back to rest our weary heads at the Butterchurn Guest House in Otterburn. It was snowing again. The boys and I decided to travel back on Sunday after a well earned nap!!!

The Boys of "Raf Rescue" said they enjoyed my company and they look forward to further motor sport adventures with me...that would be fun!!

I'm now off to another part of the UK to have even more adventures - so I'll post another update soon.

Thank you to everyone who has taken part so far and to those who have donated - you're awesome!

Lots of Love

Hi Everyone!!

I've had a great few days with the team at Ideal Schools in Glasgow! I was put straight to study and it wasn't long before I was helping the guys out with my in depth knowledge of bookkeeping!

I'll be sad to leave today but it's time to move on and make some more new friends!

I'll be travelling home to the borders today as I'll be helping the health and safety guys out at the Borders Rally this weekend - I'm so excited!!

I'm enjoying my adventures and can't wait to see where else I'll be going :)

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far - I am so grateful for your help as is the team back at NS24 Ltd HQ!!

I'll update you all again soon....

Hi Everyone!

I'm sorry I've not given an update for a while - I got lost!!
However, I'm safe and sound now so thought I'd share an update with you all.

I spent a day in Perth last week with the lovely people at Fraser and Accountants. They were really welcoming and I had lots of fun being outside, after being stuffed in a box for a few days I was glad of the fresh air!

I'm now in Glasgow with Ideal Schools and I have been put straight to work studying - hopefully I could help the guys back at NS24 with some accounts??

I'm not sure where I'm going next but I guess that's all part of the fun!

I'll update you all again soon!

Lots of Love
