Since we decided to restart Jammy Toast people have been asking us how it all started and more importantly why. It is always fun looking back and trying to discover how an otherwise normal, sane and sensible person like myself (*cough*) suddenly decide to start a retirement home for Renault Bears? How was it that we suddenly decided to spend hours searching the world for unwanted Renault Bears and bringing them here to Jammy Toast to spend the remainder of their days watching daytime telly and eating their favourite food? I think it is a story worth re-telling, so this is how it all started…

A Return To Egypt – But When?

Egypt is a beautiful country with some beautiful people. We bears hold the country in very high esteem, in fact; without Egypt there might never have been a Jammy Toast. That is the country in which Eddie first befriended Davidd and Miss Chimpton. However, despite the beauty of the country and all the happy holidays we have spent there, it has never been at peace. There is always trouble brewing just beneath the surface. One year when we went they blew up the Hilton Hotel just down the road along with another hotel in the tourist capital of Sharm El Sheikh. Many of the hotels have armed guards at the front doors to stop extremists from gaining entry.

We have answered this question before but every time we get new friends here at Jammy Toast they ask the same question. How did we first start rescuing Renault Bears? It all began one Christmas back in 2006 when I was planning a holiday to Egypt. My daughter and I were all packed and ready to go when a friend of ours, Mr Tony ‘Yummy’ Banks, told us that his teddy bear had never been on holiday. In his whole life his bear had never ventured far from his home in Liverpool. After explaining to us disbelieving sceptics that his bear was his best friend, he asked if we would take him with us as a special treat for his bear because he had been very well behaved that year and deserved a treat.
