Bear Cottage Children’s Hospice welcomes Baxterbear!

BearCottageBannerHeader The Bear Cottage Children’s Hospice got into the festive spirit with their very own Baxterbears! Phillippa Whitfield Pomeranz, television producer for core3entertainment, welcomed Baxterbear to Sydney and Cath Whitfield lent a helping hand decorating Bear Cottage for Christmas. 1 They were assisted by Josh Pomeranz, of Spectrum Films and it certainly was a family affair at the Bear Cottage this Christmas – their mother is Australian TV critic, and presenter of At The Movies, Margaret Pomeranz. 2 Bear Cottage was established in 2001 and helps families cope with caring for a terminally ill child. “Even though the outlook for these kids is a sad one, Bear Cottage is actually one of the most uplifting and inspiring places you could ever visit. Here, children laugh and play. Life is celebrated, lived to its fullest and also fondly remembered.” http://www.bearcottage.chw.edu.au/ 3
