Teddy bears give their owners unlimited love and hugs, but who’s there to hug them when they get left behind?280People travelling through the airport often forget things such as belts, laptops and mobile phones, and sometimes their furry friends too. Some make it home, but some get forgotten.
When staff at London City Airport found Ted in lost property, they started a campaign to get him home. The response they received from the public led them to create Adop-TED, a website for rehoming lost and unwanted teddies.
A spokesperson for the airport said: “A lot of teddies face neglect this Christmas. Some have been forgotten about and are lost at the airport, some have been outgrown by their owners and left alone in a cold dark cupboard, while others may have been mistreated by family pets using them as chew toys.
“Adop-TED is like a dogs’ home for teddies – people are invited to rehome a lost or unwanted cuddly toy in return for a donation to Richard House Children’s Hospice in East London.“We hope to find new homes for all our lost bears, including a few familiar faces that would all make great Christmas presents, and raise money for charity in the process.”
