Graham Hurrell honoured with Golden Teddy

Published on: 8th August 2018

Graham is the latest toy industry stalwart to be awarded a Golden Teddy by the BTHA.

The presentation was made by former BTHA chair and president Clive Jones, and took place at the BTHA/Toy Trust golf day at Sonning Golf Club in Berkshire.

Graham has worked in the industry for 45 years working for Matchbox, Chicco, Marvins Magic, Vivid Imaginations and Rubies. He was proposed by Mel Hodgkins and seconded by Julian Hartfield.

His proposer and seconder said of him: “Graham represents everything that the toy industry aspires to be: fun, warm and engaging. His honesty and integrity are beyond reproach, and the industry could not have hoped for a better ambassador.”

Graham said he was “delighted” to receive the award.

Golden Teddies recognise the industry’s unsung heroes. They are for people who have worked a minimum of 15 years in the industry, are seen to be of good character and – above all – are considered to be nice people.

Readers who know of someone who deserves a BTHA Golden should contact Matt Jones at the BTHA who will provide a nomination form.
