Little Ted goes to School
Synopsis: Teddington Trust is a charity supporting those affected by xeroderma pigmentosum. We do this through a dedicated patient liaison service and through health and well being and educational projects. Our Little Ted goes to school educational resource uses our award-winning Little Ted Bear to talk and encourage a same but different attitude in our primary schools. Come along and bring your children for a fun filled experience with Little Ted, interactive worksheets and story-telling.
Teddington Trust was initially founded in 2012 by Rebecca and Wilbur Stewart in response to the diagnosis of their nephew Eddison, then aged 13 months. It operated as an individual family run fundraising organisation aimed at raising awareness of XP and for funding to build Eddison his own indoor garden.
On completion of Eddison’s wonderful new space, Rebecca and Eddison’s Mum, Nicola, decided to build on the amazing support. Following the success the Trust has achieved it has now become a registered charity, allowing them to focus on large scale project work aimed at helping to improve the quality of lives of those affected by Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP).
