Hope the Bear joins Ataxia UK!

Hope the Bear joins Ataxia UK!

Last month, our Friends on Facebook took part in a name-the-bear competition.

Over many brilliant responses, we finally decided ‘Hope’ ought to be the winner. So without further ado, we introduce Hope, the Ataxia UK bear!

Hope sits at just under 12cm tall and is very much on-brand, sporting her own Ataxia UK t-shirt. She works hard in the office, but tends to take off around Britain from time to time, attending fundraising events, clinical trials and making mischief on the Ataxia UK Instagram channel when we’re not looking. Keep an eye out for her! 

You can purchase your very own Hope at the Ataxia UK shop.
