We started our story in 1987 when our founder, Amanda Murphy MBE, secured an order of 10,000 footsie rollers from The Body Shop. At this point, we had 5 wood craftsmen working from their homes to complete this order. Today, we have over 411 employees on 2 campuses and around 60 more that are employed through the trust activities.
The Teddy Trust was started in 1991, to reinvest a large portion of the profit generated through the business, into our community and its development. We currently run 3 schools (Primary, Secondary, and a Special Needs School), The Dobby's Trust (Physiotherapy centre), HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns, Drugs & Alcohol Abuse training, and animal welfare camps in our surrounding communities. For up-to-date progress and new trust initiatives, please follow our Instagram and Facebook pages.
