Ready, Teddy, Go...

16 May 2019
Hatfield couple Ivy and Keith Churchill have just celebrated 60 years of marriage but Ivy, 84, also likes a cuddle with Ted too.

In the past few months Ivy has hand-knitted more than 80 teddy bears. The first batch went to St Albans Fire Service but since early 2019 HAD has been the lucky recipient.

“I originally began knitting them for my children and grandchildren, but the idea of donating them to local charities came from the local Town Women's Guild,” Ivy explained. 

Ivy's an ex customer of HAD having bought a rollator and several walking sticks from us five years ago. “I love knitting them and the last few are in HAD's colours of green and blue,” she explained.

The couple moved to Hatfield from Cricklewood, in north west London in 1960.

If you would like to buy one of Ivy's teddy bears they are available from HAD's Woodside HQ in the Commons for a nominal sum. Call 01707 324581 for more details.
