    Donating Teddy Bears 28th Feb 17 at 2:37 PM
    I have a lot of teddy bears in good condition that my son does not play with anymore and are just in a box in the loft. Does anyone know any charities or places I can donate them? I'd hate to throw them away!

    They need to have the C.E mark on the label for a charity to take them

    Have a look at the Teddy Trust who take bears to go to Syria and elsewhere. They send thousands. Details under Teddy Trust on the Clubs and Organisations page of KingslandLife.com
