Public Appeal: Help Spar Find The Missing Teddy

22 Dec 2014

We would like to appeal for the help of the public to find a missing teddy bear. The bear has a huge sentimental value and the family who own it are desperate to have it returned. 

Last Saturday (20th December) a boy named Patrick and his mother Dara were in Spar on Vernon Avenue at around 1:30pm. They had been to the ‘With Love’ store first as well as Butlers Pantry and the chemist next door. Dara had had his teddy with him but it was lost at some point on their visits to these stores. 

The mother and son returned to all the shops they visited and checked CCTV in Spar, but to no avail. They are at a loss as to at what point the teddy bear went missing. 

Gus O’ Hara and the team at Spar Vernon Avenue have been actively searching the locality since Saturday, but to no avail so far. They are determined to help Patrick and want to ask the public for help!

If this was YOUR kids bear you would know how this poor Mammy feels!!

Let’s find Patrick’s teddy and return it to him in time for Christmas! We all remember the importance of our favourite toys as children and losing them is a terrible experience. 

We would appreciate if anyone who has any information to please contact us at or to contact Dara directly on 0876166793.
