Bandaged Bear Breakfast - the most important meal of the year!
It is the meal that just can't be missed. A good breakfast is important for a healthy start to the day but a Bandaged Bear Breakfast in March is the most important meal of the year.
With the 24th annual Bandaged Bear Appeal running throughout the month of March, The Children's Hospital at Westmead's beloved mascot is asking the community to hold a Bandaged Bear Breakfast at school, at home or at work to support the Hospital's largest fundraising appeal, making a significant difference to the lives of sick children.
