Christmas 2022 – Teddy Bear Drive

1000s of Teddy Bears and plush toys are being collected and donated to the Little Optimist Trust, by our partners and friends around the Western Cape.

The Teddies have been pouring in thanks to Darios Café Hout Bay, Kom Surfshop, Lifestyle Surf Shop, Llandudno Lifesaving Club, Clifton Lifesaving Club, SUP Cape Town, and HIIT Fitness in Parklands.

Not to mention the many, many private donations from friends, family, and Little Optimist supporters and fans.

All these  1000s of Teddies will be distributed to children in hospitals over the festive season and at further programs and visits into the new year. We are visiting  Hospitals such as Red Cross, Tygerberg, Maitland, and New Somerset Hospitals, where our staff and coaches offer books, Medals, teddies, smiles, and love at a time when they need it most.

Watch this space for more stories, pics, and vids.

Logistics and support by our sponsors Two Oceans Marine, Italtile, and Southern Wind Shipyard is what makes this possible.
