My adventures in 2009
Hello. I am 'Tatty Teddy' and I have kindly been donated to Kids in Need as their lucky mascot. I have been allocated this page and I hope to use it as a diary so that you can monitor my adventures.
I am very excited to meet the Kids in Need team. Have you seen them on the 'Committee' page yet? They look like they are very friendly.

I got to meet the Kids in Need committee today at one of their meetings and I am very impressed with the work they do. Did you know that they all give up their time for free? Not one person gets paid for the work they do which means that the majority of the money raised by Kids in Need goes straight to granting lots and lots of wishes. Now that's cool.

Today was my first official outing as a Kids in Need mascot and I ended up playing golf at Bentley Golf Club.
The weather was lovely but I think I need to practise my golf swing as I did not win any of the competitions. Never mind, there is always the next golf day in July and if I practise lots, I will definitely get better.
Do you think I look smart in my Bentley Golf Club hat?

It has just dawned on me that I don't have a name. Can you imagine not having a name? How will I know when it'stimetocome in for supper or if my friends are calling me? Well the nice people on the Kids in Need Committee have come up with a plan to help. They will sell names for £1 each and at the Children's summer party in June, someone will pick one from the 100's of names purchased
What a great weekend I have had. Not only did I attend the Kids in Need Summer Party where I got to meet lots of children who have had their wishes granted but I also now have a name.
My name is Stewart and it was purchased by Harvey and his parents. Thanks Harvey, I love my new name.
I also want to thank Grace for picking my name out and I hope she likes her small Tatty Teddy and it reminds her of me.
As you can see from some of the photo's, I made lots of friends this weekend and if I'm very lucky I may even appear in a couple of local papers (the Brentwood Gazzette and the Essex Chronicle).
I hope everyone that attended the party had a great time. I know I did. x

I'm now in training for the 10 mile sponsored walk that is going to be held in Southend on Sunday 5thJuly. At first I could just about manage to walk to the supermarket and back but as I have been training every night after school, I can now walk 7 miles without getting out of breath. With just over a week to go, I'm sure I will be prepared enough to complete the 10 miles on the day.
Wish me luck!

Wow, 10 miles is a long way and my poor feet are not happy with me but due to my training and the support of the people in Southend, I managed to complete all 10 miles of the sponsored walk. I have to say it felt great to finish knowing that all my hard work training paid off and that lots of money was raised to help grant even more wishes. My favourite part of the day was when I finally finished the walk and I tucked into some sandwiches and a piece of fruit cake!
Well done everyone that walked, sponsored us or came along to support.
