A rail company has released a gallery of lost soft toys left behind on trains – including a Paddington Bear.
The Teddy Rescue scheme by First Great Western tries to reunite teddies and toys that were left on trains and ended up in lost property.
First Great Western say that any toy not claimed within three months will embark on new adventures with a children’s charity.
A spokesman said: “Do you recognise any of these shady characters?
“Unable to negotiate the gap unaided, these little bears and other cute cuddly toys have been separated from their families on board First Great Western trains.
“Eventually, aided by our helpful and friendly staff, they found their way to Lost Property in the vaults of Bristol Temple Meads Station?. but have now escaped.
“Having been fed and looked after, they seek new summer adventures across the First Great Western network. But what they really want is to go home.”
“Since Teddy Rescue was launched in November 2014, many have offered to provide a new home for lost toys, but we have been unable to reunite a single bear or cuddly toy with their original family. Help us get them home.”
The company have advised anyone who recognises any of the soft toys to email firstname.lastname@example.org describing the lost bear, highlighting any distinctive features, where they were lost; their name, your name, full address and contact details.
