TEDS  - TOY EXCHANGE & DONATE SCHEME - TOY EXCHANGE & DONATE SCHEME
 
TEDS Beneficiaries
 
We have many beneficiaries that benefit from your donations,
 facilitated through our premises, staff and volunteers
who process and clean the donated/exchanged goods.
 
TEDS has working partnerships with NAOMI HOUSE CHILDRENS' HOSPICE based in Hampshire and JULIAS HOUSE CHILDRENS' HOSPICE based in Dorset, who care for children with life limiting illnesses. We offer them our excess goods which they can resell in their shops based in Boscombe, WInton, Ferndown, Creekmoor, New Milton amongst others, enabling them to raise vital funds for their valued work for the children and also their families and siblings. (Currently they are not collecting any more donations from us as their warehouses are full, so please, shop with them for some great bargains across the board and help support these amazing causes)!
