intu MK wants your unwanted teddies!

Date Posted:10/05/2016

All parents know what it’s like when their children collect teddy after teddy - their bedrooms can start to look more like teddy bear sanctuaries! Well, for any teddies that could do with a new home, intu Milton Keynes is launching the Teddy Amnesty and inviting children to donate one of their old teddies.

The Amnesty will be located on Central Boulevard from Saturday 7 until Sunday 29 May. All donations are welcome, whether it’s a four-foot bear or a teeny tiny unicorn, even if it’s got a little stuffing oozing out; the talented team at The Zip Yard will be repairing any injured teddies at their Teddy Bear Hospital.

Recycling beloved teddies gives children the chance to pass on their furry pal to a child that can give it a new, loving home. Donations will be divided among selected local children’s charities and groups; any organisations that would like to be the beneficiary of donations can register by emailing or phoning 01908 255618.
