Zed Ted was a story first written by Bex Wilson for a school assembly in 2018. It was written for 5-11 year olds and marked the launch of a sleep competition teaching the importance of sleep as a part of a healthy lifestyle.
The story of Zed Ted will continue to be used for assemblies but will now also be sold at Zarach events and by most major online book retailers to raise bed bundle funds.
A new bed can make all the difference and that’s why Zarach exists so that tired children can sleep safely and have a better chance of learning at school.The poverty crisis (fleeing domestic abuse, redundancy, bereavement etc) can lead to a loss of routine.

Authors Biography

Bex Wilson is a deputy headteacher in Leeds and Founder of Zarach the Bed Poverty Charity.
Whilst Bex was teaching an English class she noticed a young boy who seemed distracted and tired, only for the child to reveal he in fact did not have a bed.
Bex said “After speaking with mum it became clear that the family had experienced a crisis resulting in an unplanned house move to an unfurnished home. The three children shared a bed bug infested old sofa cushion to sleep on. They were covered in sores. Mum felt like she had no hope and nowhere to turn. Despite working in a city with lots of brilliant community organisations, I discovered there wasn’t any help available to get the children beds.”
Bex works tirelessly to help put an end to bed poverty. Visit www.zarach.org for more details.
