TEDS TOY EXCHANGE & DONATE SCHEME 


How we help

Some of your donated and exchanged items may be given to local families in need, via referrals from health care professionals and local charities that we work alongside, so the items get directly to the children that need them.


All local schools, nurseries, children's centres, playgroups and mums groups - private or funded, are given automatic discount off all pre-loved items at TEDS. Groups simply register on our scheme and start shopping for the bargains.


Items that are unsuitable to sell in a childrens shop, plus our excess items, are donated to other charity shops operating in our area, so they can sell them to raise funds for their particular deserving cause. Great recycling of adult and kids stuff plus businesses supporting other businesses during these hard financial times for the High Street in general.


Many of the items we receive are not of a high enough standard for the British Market, but are of huge use to those in great need. We recycle as much as possible, which includes sending items out to other countries through working partnerships with local charities which have included Myras Wells and Vision7 and also through our recycling collections

*** CURRENTLY WE ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW PROJECT TO SUPPORT - PLEASE GET IN TOUCH IF YOU ARE ALREADY EXPORTING ITEMS ABROAD AND ARE LOOKING TO FILL CONTAINER SPACE ***

Can We Help Each Other? 

If you are able to support us by having our flyers and business cards, then please let us know and display them in as many places as possible. Perhaps you are able to promote TEDS in your local schools, playgroups, community halls, parent toddler groups, breast feeding and ante-natal groups, in your local businesses and on your social media pages. If you require any other promotional materials or print outs then please contact us and we can bring or post some to you. We appreciate your time in doing this and you can be sure that you will help us enormously.

TEDS are more then happy to reciprocate with helping to publicise your organisation if you offer a service to children and parents in the Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire areas. Let's keep it local and help each other!
