Until a few weeks ago Clive the Bear was homeless, unwanted, unloved. Clive pictured here with Catching Lives’ Paul Todd spent years in a toy shop but no-one would buy him because he wasn’t cute enough. When the toy shop closed he was left out with the rubbish and forced to live on the street foraging for honey when he could. When he turned up on the doorstep of Catching Lives he was hungry, desperate and stark naked. We took him and fed and clothed him. For some reason no one can fathom he took a shine to Paul, who is the only person who can understand Clive – we can understand that. Clive decided he would like to repay by giving something back. He has some wonderful stories about his adventures he would like to share with school children to help them learn more about homelessness.
If you would like Clive the Bear to come and talk to your school, club or event please contact Paul Todd, his interpretor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
