Calling all Islanders: sending a Cuddly out is just a great way to spread a little love in these difficult times.
Since the initiative was first launched last month, the Manx Blind Welfare Society has been inundated with donations of beautiful cuddy toys, and is delighted to be gifted such a quality selection ready for adoption and a chance to extend their Cuddly careers!
The Society’s ‘Cuddly Wuddly Adoption Club’ gives pre-loved toys a new lease of life and an opportunity to find a new forever home. The charity takes donations of toys received at its Douglas-based charity shop, The VIP Store, and gives them a spa day, a new name and an official adoption certificate. They are then free to be adopted for a small fee, with all monies received staying on-Island to support the work of Manx Blind Welfare Society.
Manx Blind Welfare Society Office Manager Kerry Healey: ‘We are so grateful for the donations of toys we have received since the launch of ‘The Cuddly Wuddly Adoption Club’, and we now have the most wonderful collection of toys ready for their new owners. Now, it is just a case of pairing them up with their new loving families!
‘If you know anyone that would love some cuddles from one of our special cuddly friends, whether that’s a little girl or boy, a grandparent, auntie or sister – anyone at all - please get in touch. All we request is for the new owner to take the Cuddly Wuddly Adoption Club pledge to be kind, protective, loving and faithful’ to their new friend.
'We’ve already sent a good number of Cuddly Wuddly’s out across the Island and on longer Cuddly missions in the UK.’
Manx Blind Welfare Society looks after the interests of more than 500 people with serious sight loss in the Isle of Man. A friendly team of staff, supported by more than 200 volunteers, provide a comprehensive range of services and support.
