Barnardo’s confirms Teletubbies partnership

Special limited edition merchandise will launch in April 2017 in charity’s shops.

Barnardo’s is launching a new partnership with the Teletubbies brand next year.

The collaboration will see special Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po limited edition merchandise launching in Barnardo’s shops across the UK from April 2017.

The Teletubbies brand – which is marking its 20 year anniversary in 2017 – will also be supporting the Barnardo’s Big Toddle. This is the largest annual fundraising event for under five year olds, which is also celebrating its 20th birthday.

Javed Khan, Barnardo’s chief executive, said: “We’re delighted to announce our new partnership with Teletubbies next year.

“2017 is going to be a very exciting year for Barnardo’s and we’re thrilled Teletubbies will be a part of that.”

Charlotte Hill, Teletubbies’ senior brand manager at DHX Brands, added: “Teletubbies celebrates play, love and laughter, so working with the UK’s leading children’s charity that helps to improve vulnerable children’s lives is a natural fit for the brand.”
