Carlisle Teddies for Quadkinder (Quad kids)

With a load of teddy bears from the Carlisle brand, Bohnenkamp has been supporting a campaign by Quadkinder Rheinland/Niederrhein (Lower Rhine). The association of quad, ATV, UTV and buggy drivers is passionately committed to helping sick children and those with disabilities.

This year, as part of the campaign "We put a smile on children's faces – that's a promise!", several boxes with donations in kind were handed over to the parents' initiative 'Krebskranker Kinder Sankt Augustin e.V' (Children with cancer St. Augustin registered association). Among them were Bohnenkamp's 120 teddies. In the future, they will be at home on the "Silver Island" of the Children's Hospital in St. Augustin, a colourful play and relaxation area for the young patients on the oncology ward.

Usually, quad rides are part of Quadkinder's programme for sick children and those with disabilities. This year, however, the popular jaunts were just as impossible as visits to the wards due to the continued strict coronavirus conditions in the hospital environment. "However, we still collected donations for institutions that care for sick children and children with disabilities", co-organiser Thomas Endiger told Quadwelt. The magazine had also strongly supported the campaign and passed on the Carlisle teddies from Bohnenkamp, among other things.
