Paddington Bear’s visit to Headstart Nursery, Horsham

Marmalade sandwiches were on the menu at a Horsham nursery school this week, as staff and children got ready for a visit from Paddington Bear.

Children at Headstart Nursery in Hurst Road are supporting Action Medical Research and, as patron of the charity, Paddington dropped in to pay them a visit.

The much-loved children’s character has been linked with Action Medical Research since 1976, when author Michael Bond met charity founder Duncan Guthrie.
