In 2015 Hari Hi Way, a young elephant at Chester Zoo, died of endotheliotropic herpes virus (EEHV), a disease that is threatening young elephants in zoos and in the wild around the world. To help Chester Zoo in its support for the global research into a cure for EEHV, Charlie Bears has introduced the Hari Hi Way toy to its collection of handmade and highly collectable cuddly animals.

All profits from the sale of the toy go to the Chester Zoo We Will Never Forget campaign

Founded in 2005 by Charlotte and William Morris, the company began with a collection of 12 fluffy toys, which over the years has expanded into over 2,500 different designs, each with its own personality. All profits from the Hari Hi Way toy (£50) will go to the Chester Zoo We Will Never Forget campaign to raise funds for research into a vaccine for EEHV.
