Sing a Song for Simpsons

Exclusive KT Tunstall supports SSCB!

We’ll really miss our annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic this year. It's usually a chance for us to get together with our supporters, sing songs, have fun and raise money for the neonatal unit. But because that's not possible, we’re asking your children to help us create a musical adventure from home instead!

Like all small charities in the UK, we've been hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. We would love it if your family would Sing a Song for Simpsons to share joy at this tough time and help raise much needed funds for the neonatal unit.

If you enjoy KT’s version of Teddy Bear's Picnic as much as we do and would like to provide a donation to the work of Simpsons Special Care Babies, we would love your support.

What do you need to do?

Donate to or set up your own fundraising page at www.justgiving.com

 

  1. Record a song! It may be one song, or you may want to sing one a day for a week or two. Share the video with your family & friends on your social media accounts or through a messaging service, if you prefer #singasongforsimpsons.

  2. Ask your family and friends to sponsor you and your children with this challenge.

 

We hope you’ll join us in Sing a Song for Simpsons to support SSCB. The funds raised will support a number of important projects such as funding the family facilities and vCreate, a new secure video and messaging system to keep families connected with their baby in the unit during this difficult time.

 

Many thanks in advance,

SSCB

If you know the words, why not start with singing Teddy Bear's picnic?

Teddy Bear's Picnic

Anne Murray

 

If you go down in the woods today

You're sure of a big surprise

If you go down in the woods today

You'd better go in disguise!

 

For every bear that ever there was

Will gather there for certain

Because today's the day the

Teddy Bears have their picnic

 

Picnic time for Teddy Bears

The little Teddy Bears are having

A lovely time today

Watch them, catch them unawares

And see them picnic on their holiday

 

See them gaily gad about

They love to play and shout

They never have any cares

At six o'clock their Mommies and Daddies

Will take them home to bed

Because they're tired little Teddy Bears

 

Every Teddy Bear who's been good

Is sure of a treat today

There's lots of marvellous things to eat

And wonderful games to play

 

Beneath the trees where nobody sees

They'll hide and seek as long as they please

'Cause that's the way the

Teddy Bears have their picnic

 

Picnic time for Teddy Bears

The little Teddy Bears are having

A lovely time today

Watch them, catch them unawares

And see them picnic on their holiday

 

See them gaily gad about

They love to play and shout

They never have any cares

At six o'clock their Mommies and Daddies

Will take them home to bed

Because they're tired little Teddy Bears

Because they're tired little Teddy Bears
