To mark the first Brianna Treat Day we took a group of children to enjoy a production of the Little Mermaid at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre in Eastbourne.
The talented Seaford Musical Theatre Juniors in conjunction with Teddy Treats Children's Charity and CWC, Polegate, hosted another sparkling Just Because party at the Barn Theatre. Featuring the amazing TomFoolery children's entertainer the party put a smile on the faces of children who have or are suffering illness, trauma or bereavement, if only for a little while.
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported Teddy Treats this year by donating money, treats, time, website support, organised raffles, run marathons, and given me encouragement even when I am flagging. Most of all thank you for the love and support within our local community and the willingness to help children and families who need a treat. Brenda xxx
Christmas can be tough on a low income so we've teamed up with local Seaford and Newhaven food banks to provide creative toys for local children this Christmas. Thank you to the Old Boot in Seaford and the New Hope Inn in Newhaven for being drop-off points. We have been totally overwhelmed by how kind and generous people have been which has allowed us to help over 100 local families this Christmas.
Teddy Treats is delighted to announce that we will now be helping children beyond Seaford. Moving forwards we will also be working with kids in Newhaven and the surrounding area.
Thank you so much to Stephanie Watts and her fabulous pupils for supporting Teddy Treats with a raffle at their Inter School competition. The £79 they raised is enough for 8 treats or 8 theatre tickets for local children.
An enormous thank you to the Cambrdige family and the New Hope Inn in Newhaven for organising the cheque presentation for the donaition of the funds raised in memory of Brianna. We are looking forward to working with you in the years to come making the lives of local children that little bit better.
It is with heart felt thanks that we are announicing that Seaford Rugby Club raised £1000 in memory of Brianna Cambridge. Brianna's family have chosen to support Teddy Treats for the next 8 years and we are tremendously grateful for their kindness. Teddy Treats will be celebrating an annual Brianna Day with a theatre trip for local children. Thank you to Andrew and Gwen Cambridge and everyone at Seaford Rugby Club for their generosity and hard work.
We are delighted to announce that Seaford Rugby Club have added the Teddy Treats logo to their club shirts. The charity will also be featured in their 2016-17 club handbook. Let's hope their generous support brings them good luck in the coming season.
Between May and August there were a series of disco nights at the Old Boot Inn to raise money for Teddy Treats. Dancing and having fun raised £407 so a really special thank you to Tony Fowler for DJing free of charge and donating his fees and to the Old Boot for hosting the discos.
