MORE than 300 children enjoyed a teddy bear picnic in the woods which raised £3,000 for charity.

Greenwich and Bexley Cottage Hospice held the picnic near its grounds in Bostall Woods, Abbey Wood, where the only rule was to bring your own teddy bear.

As well as the children, 700 adults enjoyed games, slideshows, stalls and competitions at the event on September 13.

The hospice provides specialist palliative care and services for people with cancer and other serious illnesses, as well as supporting their families and carers.
