‘Hayley’ bear charity Auction
Early last year when we all watched the much loved Coronation Street character Hayley lose her battle with Pancreatic cancer. I was chatting with a friend who works at Granada and we both agreed that to make a memory bear in Hayley’s honour would be wonderful!
My friend had a chat with the wardrobe department and I was given a bag of Hayley’s clothes! I excitedly started to search on Google images for pics of Hayley.
I was so pleased to find that I had the blouse from her first appearance, the cardigan from the touching Blackpool Tower Ballroom scene and also the top that Hayley wore when passed away with Roy by her side.
This was the result! Beautiful ‘Hayley’ bear in all of her glory!

My friend also asked actress Julie Hesmondhalgh to sign the gift tag for me!
Hayley is being auctioned off on my Facebook page this week to raise funds for two charities Julie Hesmondhalgh (Hayley) supports – Pancreatic Cancer UK and local charity Reuben’s Retreat. Please bid generously for this unique and beautiful piece of Corrie memorabilia!
Me with Hayley!
