Teddies find new homes

A donation has been made to vulnerable children thanks to two community-focused companies. Ironbridge-based Golden Bear Toys, a leading UK toy manufacturer, entrusted a bumper haul of goodies to their Health Cash Plan provider Paycare.

Paycare then used their community connections to find five charities who would be able to distribute the teddies to children most in need across the region.

For over 40 years, Golden Bear have been transforming some of the nation’s much-loved children’s TV characters into high-quality toys including Bing, Hey Duggee and In the Night Garden as well as producing many exciting properties of its own including Curlimals, which was one of the top selling soft toy ranges in the UK in 2022.

Partnerships Manager Sally Bromley explained the toys had been at Paycare House in Wolverhampton before finding their new homes thanks to charities The Haven Wolverhampton, Brierley Hill Baby Bank, Wolverhampton Baby Bank, Black Country Women’s Aid, and the Black Country Santa Toy Appeal.

“We’ve had a large volume of toys and cuddly bears very kindly donated by Golden Bear. The good news is that we’ve managed to find permanent homes for the toys. I think we can rest assured the toys will be going to some very deserving young children and babies in our local area. I am absolutely delighted that we have been able to link with these amazing charities to ensure these toys go to local families where they will certainly put a smile on some children’s faces.”
