Recognition Express has released a sweet personalised teddy bear to raise money for the country’s NHS heroes.
The cuddly bear, which has a rainbow and the NHS logo on its tummy, can be personalised with up to 15 letters, meaning it’s the perfect gift to send to family members or friends that you’ve not been able to see for a while. The gift will cost £25, with free postage to anywhere in the UK and all profits after covering the minimum costs (at least £6 from each purchase) will go towards local NHS charities.
B2B franchise Recognition Express has plenty of experience making promotional products for all kinds of occasions and its personal teddy bears are one of the most popular gifts for life’s big milestones. And as people across the country have not been able to celebrate special moments in person, operations Chris Masters realised there was an opportunity for the business. It could help families and friends mark occasions, while also raising vital funds for NHS charities. Masters explained:
“During the lockdown families have not been able to meet up to celebrate special occasions or even the birth of a new baby. Normally we’d be able to pop round with a cuddly toy to say happy birthday or welcome the new arrival, but in these difficult times people have to find other ways to send gifts. As the UK’s leading promotional product franchise, we’ve built up a network of top-quality suppliers, so it made sense for us to stick with what we know and get this rainbow teddy bear designed especially for us.”
Masters added that fundraising for important causes is a key part of the Recognition Express ethos.
“Our franchisees have been active members of their local communities for many years and we want to play our part in fundraising for the amazing NHS. Every penny of profit will go to local NHS charities. There’s nothing in it for us apart from the pleasure of knowing that the recipient of the bear will get a lovely surprise and that we’re helping to raise much needed money for charity.”
