We are thrilled to share our BIG news today!
Teddington Trust has now achieved Registered Charity Status and has become Incorporated as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) – Charity Reference No: SC045465
Our 3 key objectives and charitable purpose are encapsulated by Health, Wellbeing & Equal Rights being:
- The advancement of education;
- Provision of recreational facilities, or the organisation of recreational activities with the object of improving the conditions of life for patients and families affected by XP; and
- Promotion of equality and diversity.
Over the coming few weeks we will undergo a period of transition as we refresh our facebook, twitter and website and we will share much more information on our very detailed strategy for the coming year, setting out our Trustees, Aims/Objectives and update on Ongoing and Future Projects.
To celebrate this wonderful news, it seemed fitting that we also share the next installment of our special Little Ted Project which is very close to our hearts, and so tonight we are pleased to launch our new Little Ted facebook page https://www.facebook.com/LittleTedAdventures which will become and online hub for this project and give us a forum for sharing Little Ted news from his new Loving Companions around the world! Please check this out, LIKE & SHARE to follow the next steps in the Little Ted Adventure!
If your child is eligible and has received their own Little Ted book and bear pack and are already a Little Ted Companion we would love you to share any pictures, feedback or news via his page.
From tonight you will also be able to download our Little Ted books which will be available to ALL to download for FREE suitable for e-reader, ipad, kindle, mobile etc. (any donations can be made via the link provided if you wish and all proceeds will further the Little Ted Project). This will allow us to reach more children affected by XP as well as allowing families to share these with friends, family, nursery and school settings and raising awareness with a wider audience.
You can access these directly from Little Ted’s facebook page https://www.facebook.com/LittleTedAdventures or by clicking below.
We would love to hear your feedback, and we thank you as always for joining us along this extraordinary journey and we look forward to sharing lots of exciting developments over the coming months as we take Teddington Trust forward on our new adventure.
Lots of Love
Nicola & Rebecca
And all at Team Teddington x x
