London City Airport’s quest to rehome abandoned teddies

Any parent will know the heartbreak of a child who’s lost their favourite teddy.
And with more than 3million people passing through London City Airport every year, it’s little wonder a few soft toys don’t make it out of the departure lounge.
Now some of the airport’s abandoned teddies are looking for a new owner to share hugs and happiness with.
From a tennis-loving teddy to a dozy dog, each of the toys available for rehoming have their own personality profiled on website Adop-Ted.
All the airport asks for in return is a donation to Beckton-based charity Richard House Children’s Hospice.

An airport spokesman said: “Adop-Ted is like a dogs’ home for teddies.
“We hope to find new homes for all our lost bears and raise money for charity in the process.”

The idea was sparked by the huge response to the airport’s bid to reunite a lost bear, Ted, with his owner, earlier this year.
All of the toys available for adoption have either been lost at the airport or donated by staff.
Those lost have been kept for at least one month to give their owner an opportunity to claim them.
