Supporting literacy in the community

We’re proud to be working with Richard Bland and his Wing Commander AB Bear – supporting literacy and mental health within communities.

His story, AB Gets His Wings – is a charming story about a little bear on an amazing adventure. Our very own Realise charity bear called ‘Maverick’ is about to take flight at RAF Valley, Anglesey. Maverick will be flying in the skies as new pilots undertake flying training, spreading the story of a little bear on a journey to improve literacy and mental health.

Realise will donate copies of ‘AB Gets His Wings’ to the 2019 Christmas Community Gift Appeal that supports over 30 local charities across Staffordshire and Cheshire, so that local children who wouldn’t receive a Christmas gift can enjoy a present this Christmas.

AB Gets His Wings

On a shelf in the toy warehouse, a cuddly, furry, lonely bear waits until night falls and the lights go out. When everyone goes home, the bear and his toy friends get up to play and lark around!

They are all waiting for the terrifying grabber that will pluck them from the shelf, drop them into a basket and take them to a new life.

When his turn comes, the little bear is afraid – he worries about where his new life will lead. Will it be with a kind boy or girl?

Join this charming little bear on his amazing adventure as W. C. A. B.
