Teddies in Cape Town

We've had a lovely note and a couple of pictures from one of our supporters in Cape Town this month December 2019

Dear Ellie,

 

One of our Rotary members Arifa Parkar handed out some teddies to children at Starling Primary School in Athlone a suburb of Cape Town.

 

The children as you can see in the attached photos,  were delighted to receive them.

 

Many thanks

Kind regards

Gavin

Thank you everyone that continues to give your precious soft cuddly teddies to us. They really do bring joy and comfort to children around the world and thank you Gavin for making it happen!

Thank you to Paradigm Norton!

As you know, we are run entirely by volunteers and  rely on our own fundraising and public donations that come in through our website to be able to ship our precious teddies to children in war torn situations and deprived areas of the world.  

So imagine how thrilled we were to be contacted recently by a company called Paradigm Norton Financial Planning Ltd who are based in Bristol offering to put the Teddy Trust forward for one of their grants.  They had come across our website and really liked what we do and were keen to help.  A few weeks later and lovely Katie Wright has sent us a donation of £750 from the company.

This is a large amount for us to receive and will help to pay for the container to Syria next month.  We are so grateful to Katie and Paradigm Norton for their wonderful support and send our thanks and best wishes to all at the company who are also collecting teddies for us!!

We're three quarters of the way to our next shipment!

Last week we had the most wonderful deliveries of teddies and soft cuddly animals and you surpassed yourselves!  A huge thank you to the very kind person who took several black bin liners tied up with string and carefully labelled to B&Q in Leominster.  It was just wonderful to open every bag and to get so many lovelies in each one that we could send to the children of Syria.  And also a huge thank you to everyone else who sent us the most beautiful teddies – lots of little letters came from some of you – we read every one and try and respond when we get an email address from you.  You touched our hearts with every lovely teddy that you sent and they are now packed and ready to go next month.

We do still get many things that we can’t send so do please read the website before you send.  There are lots of lovely pictures of teddies and soft cuddly animals that we are very happy to receive and send on and also photos of things that upset us when we receive them!  Please remember that the children we send to have nothing of their own and have gone through the most appalling traumas and so our aim is to send them one very special teddy that will bring them comfort and perhaps a little healing. 

We now have around 7,500 teddies packed and ready to be shipped to Syria our target of 10k will mean we will have sent 100,000 children a cuddly teddy since we first started around 7 years ago.  So please let your friends, family and neighbours and local schools know about us and help us spread the word.

Silverbirch Usk CiW School Are Helping Us Collect Teddies!

The Silverbirch Usk Church in Wales School have supported their pupils in doing a lovely video to go along with their drive to collect teddies to send to disadvantaged and abused children around the world. This the most perfect way for you to find out what we are trying to do at The Teddy Trust. A very professional and heartwarming production by these talented pupils. You are stars. xxxx

Thank You!

We've received the gorgeous teddies in the little gallery to the left in the last couple of weeks.

It means so much to all of us at The Teddy Trust that families and children in the UK are so generous with your precious teddies.

 

These teddies will make their way to children in need in Syria in the autumn.

 

Thank you so much

Ellie
