PHOTO GALLERY: Miller Bear spreads the love on National Hug a Bear Day
Louis Page and Jean Greaves enjoy meeting Rotherham United FC mascot Miller Bear at Broadacres Care Home.

MILLER Bear took advantage of National Hug a Bear Day to visit a Rotherham care home for some love.

Elderly residents at Broadacres Care Home, on Naylor Street, were delighted to see the furry Rotherham United football mascot walk through their door.

Miller Bear took a tour of the home to meet the residents, staff and visitors and take photos. 

Diane Rice, activities coordinator of Broadacres, said: “Hug a Bear Day might be one of the more unusual national celebrations but when your local football mascot is Miller Bear it would be a shame to miss it.

“Our residents were absolutely delighted by the visit and couldn’t resist a hug with the giant bear.”
