About Us

We are a non-profitable organisation run by student volunteers from University of Sheffield. 

This public health project is aimed at children between the age 3-8 years old. We hope to reduce the anxiety that young children may feel when seeing doctors or 
other health professionals, or going to the hospital.

We also encourage healthy eating, exercise and dental hygiene - but it's all for fun!

So come along to our FREE events! All you need is a Teddy... (but don't worry, we have some Teddies who would love to go around the event with you if you forget yours).

But don't take our word for it - find out what Gingy and Trunk got up to!
