Last week Aching Arms was delighted to receive address and logo labels from Bakers. Tom Carpenter from the charity recently contacted Steve Baker to ask for help with their new packaging. Bakers jumped at the chance to share our label expertise and of course aid, to such a thoughtful charity. To read more about how Bakers supports charities, please visit our charity page.

This amazing charity gives comfort bears to hospitals and hospices to offer to bereaved parents in their care. Previously they had been sending the bears in postal bags, but wanted to make it even more special by sending them in a ‘bear box’. This is where Bakers came in to help by providing branded address labels and logo stickers for the tissue paper wrapping.


‘We wanted to say a huge thank you for your overwhelming welcome and support yesterday when we came to collect the address and logo labels. We are thrilled with the labels and stickers and know that they will make the experience of receiving a bear such a special one for our bereaved parents, who for many it will be the first thing they have in relation to their baby. This is such a compassionate gift to give someone and thank you so much for being part of this.’

Aching Arms is a special charity that provides comfort to people in their darkest moments.

Aching Arms currently works with over 160 hospitals in the UK, as well as hospices, support groups and funeral directors. Bears are also sent directly to families who request one. Last year they donated over 5,000 bears to bereaved families. Along with the bears, they also offer a support service for parents after their loss. This could be during pregnancy, at birth or soon after. Supporting Arms is run by by bereaved parents and offers support via telephone and email.
