teddies 4 tragadies
LET US EXPLAIN – We are not a registered charity. Teddies for Tragedies started as a pattern for knitted teddies intended to bring comfort and hope to children around the world.
HOW IT BEGAN – In 1986 in Somerset, “Superted”, a washable knitted teddy, was added to a consignment of medicines going to a refugee camp in Sudan. The doctor replied “ For some children, these teddies do more good than medicines, giving them hope”. The teddy knitting began, and a bag was added, increasing the play value. In 1991, when the pattern came to Guildford, Surrey, “Teddies for Tragedies” began. Now there are a number of branches around the country.
