The Poppy Factory
For 90 years, The Poppy Factory in Richmond, UK, has been making poppies, wreaths and other remembrance products for the Royal Family and the Royal British Legion’s annual Remembrance Day appeal. More recently, The Poppy Factory has also been helping wounded, injured or sick ex-military personnel of all ages and from a variety of armed forces backgrounds find jobs beyond the Factory.
Inspired by conversations with veterans from many conflicts The Great British Teddy Bear Company has chosen to change the way they make their Great British Teddy Bears; during 2013 we employed wounded ex-military personnel at the Poppy Factory to dress our Armed Services bears in the UK. The Great British Teddy Bear Company continue creating toys in Great Britain that represent the brave men and women that serve our country. It is our hope that in 30 years time the teddy bears that we are delivering today to the grandchildren of our brave Veterans will be use to preserve their stories for future generations.
The Great British Teddy Bear Company is proud to have supported The Poppy Factory.
