True Colours Thursday - YELLOW!

I have only one real YELLOW bear, in the Hug!
That is of course Pudsey the BBC's
'Children in Need' famous mascot!
Mother wrote about his arrival @ the time, but I will quickly reprise.
'Children in Need' now a registered charity, raises money to
'make a positive difference to the lives of disadvantaged children & young people throughout the UK'.
This annual fund raising event, started in November 1980, but it was not until 1985, that host Terry Wogan introduced a cuddly brown called Pudsey.
He proved so popular, he returned as
'Children in Need's official mascot the following year with a re-vamped image, that of a YELLOW bear with a red spotted bandage over one eye!
Since then, he's gone of from strength to strength, sponsoring events large & small.
However, last year in time for the 28th fundraiser, Pudsey had a make over; ie a multi-coloured spotted scarf!
Mother subsequently found these guy, in their old colour scarf, donated by retailer Boots to the
Helen & Douglas House Children's Hospice charity shop in town, she snapped the twins up...Thankfully, she did not keep both of them.
One quickly went to bear friend Edwards Hug.
So, when, I arrived there was just a single Pudsey to contend with...
He's a cheaky YELLOW fellow!
