About Us

MotherBear! is part of registered charity The Brun Bear Foundation.
The Brun Bear Foundation supports a mix of communal, children’s
medical and animal welfare causes. We support play areas, maternity
projects globally, scholarships … and have a soft spot for Brown
Bears!

It all began with two bears...

The Brun Bear Foundation was established in 2015 by Edwin Lampert in
memory of his father.

Sadly, Edwin's Dad had Brain Cancer. The radiotherapy his father went
through resulted in his father believing that the family lived with
two kindly bears called Brunhilfer and Brunfin.

Edwin's Dad - who has good insight into his condition - asked his son
to look after his bears for him "when the time came."

When his Dad died in 2014 Edwin set about creating a charitable
foundation as way of honouring his father's memory and values as well
as supporting causes he had held dear: medical research, community
projects in the London Boroughs of Bromley and Lewisham, and animal
welfare - with special emphasis on bears.

And so The Brun Bear Foundation was born. It's name deriving from the
name of his father 's two bears: Brunhilfer and Brunfin.

Edwin's first act was to write a children's book about two kindly
bears who lived with a kindly man and his wife. All proceeds from book
sales go to The Foundation. Russian, German and French language
versions of the first book are now complete. The second book is about
to launch!

Edwin subsequently added community events, scholarship programmes,
supper clubs and an annual epic charity challenge to The Brun Bear
Foundation's activities.

The Brun Bear Foundation is staffed entirely by volunteers who work
hard to support the charity's chosen causes, uphold its inclusive
ethos and maybe, in some small way, help Edwin look after his father's
bears too.
