STEIFF ARMISTICE TEDDY BEAR 30CM
Limited Edition of 1918
Steiff have created this Armistice Teddy Bear to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War and it pays tribute to all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives.
SSAFA (Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association) is the UK's oldest independant tri-service military charity, that has been providing lifelong support to serving men and women and veterans from the British Armed Forces and their families or dependants since 1885.
At the outbreak of the First World War, the government called on SSAFA to take care of the families of soldiers going to the front, providing food for the hungary, housing for the homeless and clothing for those that were destitute and the SSAFA volunteers helped over one million people between 1914-1918 and they continue to provide personalised practical, emotional and financial support to over 67,000 people every year.
The Steiff Armistice Teddy Bear is made from blond mohair, with red poppies and it has the SSAFA emblem on the right paw pad. It is exclusive to the UK and a limited edition of 1918, which represents the year that the First World War ended.
£20 from the sale of each bear is being donated to SSAFA by Steiff and the retailers - so buy this bear and support a great cause!!
It has the famous gold plated "Button in Ear" and a white label with red writing, showing that it is only limited to 500 pieces worldwide, making a very collectable bear.
