“Bagpuss, dear Bagpuss, old cat furry catpuss”

Here at Hospices of Hope, we love Bagpuss!

Our Bagpuss Children’s Wing in Brasov was opened in 2002, thanks to a £150,000 donation from Oliver Postgate, the creator of Bagpuss.

Oliver was a great supporter of Hospices of Hope and when he passed away in December 2008, he gave us the right to use the Bagpuss name and character as he wanted to see “the saggy old cloth cat” continue to raise funds for our child patients.

We were also delighted that Emily Firmin, who played Emily in the Bagpuss series, travelled to Brasov to open the Bagpuss Children’s Wing.
