Theo is 6, comes from a military family and lives in Kingston in Thames. Theo was watching BBC Breakfast segment about food banks and the end of universal credit and was concerned some children may not get any toys from Santa Claus this year. He wanted to raise money for his nominated charity Scotty's Little Soldiers, a child bereavement charity,  and  also buy a toy for any child who needs one this year by donating money to the Toy Project.


Theo's mum was also telling him about the amount of toys that go to landfill every year when these Toys could be hygienically cleaned and re-gifted and Theo's teddy rescue was born. Theo is initially selling his teddies to raise funds but will also like to appeal for donations of support for his nominated charities and ask for any toys in a good condition that can be cleaned.
